College 8, Room 201 | Free
Join Sanchita Saxena as she discusses her new book, Made in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka: The Labor Behind the Global Garments and Textiles Industries, which earned rave reviews from leading experts. It is essential reading for students and researchers in policy studies, labor studies, South and Southeast Asian studies, international trade, and political science, as well as those engaged in program design and evaluation of projects focused on labor rights. This study is critical for non-governmental organizations with a thematic focus on the garments and textiles industry, labor rights, human rights, and international trade policy, as well as for private sector organizations focused on improving labor conditions around the world.
Prior to joining the Institute for South Asia Studies (ISAS) at UC Berkeley, Sanchita Banerjee Saxena was the assistant director of Economic Programs at the Asia Foundation, where she coauthored The Phase-Out of the Multi-Fiber Arrangement: Policy Options and Opportunities for Asia, served as a consultant to the Asia Foundation on various economic projects, and was a Public Policy Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington D.C. Saxena holds a PhD in political science from UCLA.
