Globalization dramatically changed the way business is conducted in the apparel manufacturing industry. In many cases, these changes came with little regard to social responsibility in the design, production and sourcing of products. Social Responsibility in the Global Apparel Industry combines a broad analysis of apparel manufacturing with a discussion of how social responsibility can influence corporate strategy and decisions made throughout the global supply chain. Students learn how leading apparel and footwear manufacturers attempt to solve complex problems at all stages of the apparel manufacturing process, including child labor, harassment and abuse, discrimination, excessive hours of work, low wages and poor factory health and safety. Drawing on their experience in industry and research, the authors provide the tools to change the apparel industry from the inside out by preparing the next generation and current industry professionals with the awareness, knowledge and passion to make it more socially responsible. Features: -- Case studies, sidebars and interviews with individuals who work for multinational corporations, NGOs and labor groups related to the apparel manufacturing industry -- Comparative coverage of apparel manufacturing in various regions of the world, including China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam -- Instructor's Guide, edited by Danielle L. Stevens, provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom -- Powerpoint presentation
In this timely book, David Milman considers how UK corporate law has been affected by the forces of globalisation, arguing that this is not a new development, but rather is part of an historical continuum. He examines corporate law regulatory strategy in general, treatment of foreign shareholders and multinational groups, aspects of private international law and issues connected with cross border insolvency. The substantive chapters cover a full range of issues, from the harmonisation of corporate law, and the common denominators in corporate law principles, to the regulation of overseas companies and foreign stakeholders and transnational cooperation. The book concludes with a consideration of the wider issue of convergence in corporate law and examines whether total convergence is a realistic possibility. "National Corporate Law in a Globalised Market" is set against the backdrop of the progressive implementation of the Companies Act 2006 and the turmoil of the current world financial crisis. With a scholarly review of current theoretical and policy issues in corporate law this book will be an invaluable resource tool for academics and advanced students as well as practitioners.
