Human Rights Impacts of the Fashion Industry in Asia
The Asia Conference is an annual, student-led initiative from the Human Rights Centre at University of Essex. Our purpose is to provide a platform to highlight and discuss human rights issues in Asia with a larger audience, whether they be students, academics, or general members of the public around the globe.

The 15th Human Rights in Asia Conference will discuss “Human Rights Impacts on the Fashion Industry in Asia”. The focus will be on the impact of fast fashion industries on the working conditions of factory labourers in Asia. Additionally, it will discuss the relation between Business and Human Rights and the industry’s obligations towards the realization of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR) and sustainable practices in the garment industry. Finally, it will conclude with the vulnerable position of migrants and women in the industry.

In this session there will be two key discussions on Working Conditions and Living Wages. The three speakers will be Mr Tomoya Obokata, Ms Kate Larsen and Mr Wiranta Ginting. Business and Human Rights, Corporate Social Responsibility in the garment industry, and Migrants and Women will be discussed. In the panel discussion, Dr Katya Alkhateeb will be present as a moderator.
