ESS Professor Shahidur Rahman's book on the Bangladesh Ready-Made garment industry has been published by the University Press Limited. His book responds to three questions.
First, has the garment industry been able to undermine the vulnerability of women garment workers that they left behind in their villages? Second, is the formation of welfare committee a substitute model for unions when it comes to protecting women’s rights? Finally, how Bangladesh is dealing with both domestic and external pressures in its response to globalization, in particular after the Rana Plaza tragedy?
