Electronics Watch (EW) brings together public sector buyers and civil societyorganisations in electronics production regions with experts in human rights and global supply chains. EW supports public buyers to follow up on contractual demands through worker-driven monitoring which helps workers to voice complaints and contribute to solutions.
In this flagship case, participants will learn how Electronics Watch uses worker-driven monitoring to detect problems in factories and remediates violations through engagement with electronics brands with the support of public buyers. The case illustrates the organisation, challenges and benefits of continuous monitoring systemsas well as solution-oriented approach towards remedial measures where violations are noted.
