Syrian refugees in Turkish garment supply chains: What are companies doing to end exploitation?
In late 2015, we began tracking large European fashion brands' action to prevent exploitation of Syrian refugees in the Turkish garment industry, after worrying reports of pitiful wages, child labour and sexual abuse for refugees working without permits. Since then, we have surveyed almost 40 companies three times and released the findings (links above). Our latest survey found more leading fashion brands making efforts to prevent exploitation of Syrian refugees in Turkish supply chains than last year, but need for a coordinated effort from the industry as a whole.
This microsite lets you explore and compare brands' responses to our October 2016 survey. The survey responses to our 2017 have not been made public due to concerns this might impact negatively on companies trying to support refugees into formal employment.
