PUBLICATION: How does Fairtrade mitigate human rights violations in global supply chains?

Why a publication? To show Fairtrade’s relevance to key stakeholders who are well-versed with HREDD but puzzled about Fairtrade’s role in HREDD work and discussions. They may work as experts in NGOs, companies, academia or ministries. What makes us relevant and unique? How do we mitigate violations in supply chains? No new research, based on existing studies and expertise.
