Just Transition and Decent Work for Garment Value Chain Workers

Just Transition and Decent Work for Garment Value Chain Workers

The study examines diverse perspectives and approaches to Just Transition, span- ning from the status-quoist to transformative paradigms. It provides an analysis of the features characterising the garment value chain and the garment sector in India, spot- lighting gaps and challenges related to decent work deficits, occupational health and hazards, environmental impacts stemming from the sector, and reliance on cheap labour.

Furthermore, the study maps out various proposals, schemes, and initiatives origi- nating from authorities, businesses, and international institutions that aim to promote environmental sustainability and decent work. It delves into the challenges and op- portunities presented by a series of due diligence and sustainability-related legisla- tions coming from the Global North.

While acknowledging their limitations and exclusions, the study discusses the possi- bility of leveraging such legislations by labour leaders and environmental activists, in promoting an effective Just Transition agenda for the garment sector, all while stead- fastly adhering to a radical, transformative approach to Just Transition.
