Jordan's garment sector: How are brands combatting exploitation and abuse?

Jordan’s garment sector is booming, driven by a free trade agreement with the United States and cheap migrant labour from South and Southeast Asia. Historically the situation of these vulnerable workers has been dire and although there have been some real improvements in recent years, systemic problems around migrant workers’ legal status and recruitment means serious abusescontinue to occur. The potential for progress to be undone is heightened by the influx of an estimated 1.3 million Syrian refugees

In February 2018 we surveyed  21 garment brands, predominantly from the United States, who source from Jordan. We asked these companies to explain how they are combatting abuse of migrant workers, and how they will seek to integrate and protect Syrian refugees in their supply chains.
