Forced Labor Fashion : How the Uyghur Crisis Taints our Clothes

To mark the International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, we hosted a special panel discussion on one of the most serious modern slavery crises of our time. Hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs and other Turkic and Muslim people in China are trapped in a system of ‘re-education’ as part of the biggest detention of an ethno-religious group since World War II. This event focuses on the crisis links to the global fashion industry, which sources vast quantities of yarn and cotton produced through what are essentially state-sponsored forced labor programs.
Panellists include: Jewher Ilham, Program Associate at the Worker Rights Consortium and daughter of imprisoned Uyghur scholar Ilham Tohti Rahima Mahmut, UK project director at our partner organization World Uyghur Congress Raphaël Glucksmann MEP, journalist, director, and a prominent voice on the Uyghur crisis in the European Parliament Chloe Cranston, Business and Human Rights Manager at our partner organization Anti-Slavery International
