Annotated Bibliography of Standard Practices to Reduce Child Labor and Forced Labor in Supply Chains [open pdf - 2MB]
"This annotated bibliography was prepared by CREA: Center for Reflection, Education and Action, under a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) contract. DOL funded this project pursuant to the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2005, which mandated the development of a standard set of practices that will reduce the likelihood that [producers] will produce goods using [child labor and forced labor]. This bibliography is a collection of practices used by companies and industry organizations to address child labor and forced labor in their supply chains. It is a companion to other materials published by DOL, including the annual Department of Labor's Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor, The Department of Labor's List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor; and The Department of Labor's List of Products Requiring Federal Contractor Certification as to Forced or Indentured Child Labor. This bibliography consists of four main chapters: General, Agriculture, Manufacturing, and Mining. Business practices in specific sectors are covered in the sectoral chapters, while the General chapter includes practices that have broader application. Each chapter is color-coded. Symbols are used to denote documents that discuss specific goods, such as tobacco and apparel. An index of all documents, by author, is provided at the back of the document for easy reference. Users are strongly encouraged to view the bibliography in its electronic format, which allows quick searching and cross referencing, and provides voice reading for readers who are visually impaired."
