Ethiopia: Challenges in the Garment Industry

New York University's Stern Center for Business and Human Rights published in May 2019 a study titled "Made in Ethiopia: Challenges in the Garment Industry's New Frontier" by Paul M. Barrett and Doorothee Baumann-Pauly.

The report looks at the Hawassa Industrial Park built by a Chinese company and that now employs 25,000 workers. The authors conclude that China's economic success has not been matched by respect for human rights or political freedom.
