Abstract
Severe human rights abuses have been associated with globalisation. This paper explores the link between the aforementioned with a focus on some of the most severe impacts on workers within global supply chains – predominantly focusing on child labour and forced labour – and how trade agreements could help to lessen the blow, while at the same time avoiding protectionism. There will be a focus on impacted workers in supply chains, particularly within the extractive industry.

The introduction will provide context, describe the problem and its significance, and suggest what can potentially be done about it, before background is given in order to set the scene. Next, severe labour rights abuses within the global supply chain – in areas such as mining, agriculture, and fishery – will be analysed. Labour provisions currently within trade agreements will then be presented before the existing relevant legal framework (both international and domestic) as well as initiatives and their potential inclusion within trade agreements – in order to protect some of the most fundamental labour rights – is examined. This will be followed by a conclusion. (Less)
