On November 27th, 2017, The Carr Center for Human Rights Policy hosted the discussion “Labour Rights as Human Rights.” The event was conducted by WIEGO’s International Coordinator, Martha Chen, and Marlese von Broembsen, WIEGO’s Law Programme Director. Marlese discussed her new paper exploring solutions to address violations of the rights of homeworkers in global supply chains.
The paper argues that realizing labour rights for homeworkers requires plural, overlapping instruments at national, regional, and international levels; strong national, regional, and global movements of informal workers, including homeworkers; and the participation of homeworker organizations or leaders in the design and implementation of such instruments.
