A panel discussion organised by FAIRstrickt (a German nonprofit organisation working for fair trade / clean clothes, human rights and climate justice) on September 28, 6 pm Berlin time / 9.30 pm IST / 10 pm BDT.

How was the situation of workers, entrepreneurs and shopkeepers during coronavirus and how is it now? Can the German Supply Chain Due Diligence Act, 2023, help workers in the Global South? What positive experiences were made in overcoming the crisis? We will talk about this with our guests. Uwe Kleinert, a consultant for business and human rights at the Werkstatt Ökonomie (Workshop Economy), will also talk about the benefits of the new German Supply Chain Act and how people in Germany can support workers in the Global South to make sure that the law is enforced.
