Pressestimmen

'Richard Locke confronts issues that are of central concern to scholars, as well as to activists, firms, and consumers: under what conditions, and through which mechanisms, will workers involved in global supply chains be treated fairly? Locke's answer is that no single mechanism - corporate codes of conduct, capacity building, or host government regulation - is sufficient to effect improvements in workers' conditions. Locke argues protecting workers will require a combination of firm-level efforts, long-standing supply-chain relationships, and government effort. He draws on a rich collection of factory-level audit data, as well as in-depth interviews in a range of countries, to explore the determinants of variation in workers' rights outcomes, and to illustrate the conditions under which sustained improvements might occur.' Layna Mosley, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

'This is an outstanding book examining labor issues in global supply chains. The key strength is the level and quality of access Richard Locke has to company-level data. This type and level of access is quite unprecedented in political science. Theoretically, the book raises important issues regarding the efficacy of voluntary regulation, particularly the merits of compliance-based versus capacity-based approaches.' Aseem Prakash, Walker Family Professor for the College of Arts and Sciences, University of Washington

'This book is seminal in setting out how collaborative governance of global supply chains can deliver better employment conditions and distributive justice. Global business, governments, and NGOs with different beliefs about the proper role of business and the state should treat this as a wake-up call. The Promise and Limits of Private Power will quickly become the definitive reference on labor standards and set a high benchmark for those who study this issue.' Mari Sako, University of Oxford

'Richard M. Locke's book, The Promise and Limits of Private Power: Promoting Labor Standards in a Global Economy, does a remarkable job in this hotly contested terrain of dissecting the daunting challenges of trying to improve global labour standards, while also outlining sustainable solutions that are supported by a range of key industry actors … Locke's analysis has very significant methodological implications for anyone seeking to understand labour standards in the global economy.' Gary Gereffi, Socio-Economic Review

Über das Produkt

This book examines and evaluates various private initiatives to enforce fair labor standards within global supply chains. Through careful, empirically grounded analysis, it illustrates the mix of private and public regulation needed to address these complex issues in a global economy.
