League of Women Voters of Connecticut 
Sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Connecticut Education Fund, Inc. Co-sponsored in cooperation with the Councils of African and Middle East Studies at the Yale  MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies, with generous support from the US Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center Grants.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights unanimously adopted by the United Nations in 1948 assures workers the right to work at a just wage under favorable working conditions. However, in organizations throughout the world – from developing and emerging market countries to those of the industrialized sphere – these rights are not always guaranteed.

Join us for a panel discussion with experts whose mission has been to ensure for a just and sustainable global market network. With experience in various industries across Africa, the Middle East and Asia, they can provide an inside view on these networks — the successes, as well as overwhelming challenges still to be met. They will  identify the stakeholders involved — Governments, businesses, every day consumers — exploring fully the roles and level of collaboration needed to ensure that all workers are treated with dignity and without discrimination.
