by Homeworkers Worldwide and Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing (WIEGO) Scope is a critical issue for the proposed EU mandatory human rights due diligence Directive and national legislation. Through a short animated video, a Q and A with homeworker leaders and presentations by WIEGO and HomeWorkers Worldwide, this session makes a normative and business case for why homeworkers should be included in EU legislation and introduces a toolkit developed under the EU co-funded Hidden Homeworkers Project for brands to protect homeworkers in their supply chains.
