The failure of governmental and intergovernmental institutions to implement effective labour legislation has resulted in a rich variety of private (or non-governmental) regulatory initiatives that seek to address labour standards and enforcement in a wide range of global product chains. While some view these non-governmental regulatory systems as a negative development associated with globalization, neo-liberalism and the hollowing-out of the nation state, this research argues that these systems represent a site of contention and collaboration between different social and economic forces which could potentially have an emancipatory impact for workers and civil society.
