The aims of
this project are:
- To provide independent, systematic evidence
of the social impact of the adoption of codes. To explore the convergence
or divergence between workers priorities and code of practice. To assess
the impact on workers, worker households and local communities.
- To explore wider impacts of the adoptions of
codes, including the impact on secondary stakeholders, the local economy
- To identify ways in which code impact can be
improved and alternative strategies found for improving worker wellbeing
We are conducting in-depth research focusing on the Kenyan
flower and South African wine industries over a three year period.
