The world is increasingly interconnected through global supply chains. Trillions of dollars a year of merchandise travel across oceans and continents linking low cost manufacturers from developing countries to large discount-driven consumer markets. While the benefits of these supply chains are clear – jobs, goods and commerce – the costs are largely hidden from the public.
The Hidden Costs of Global Supply Chains is a project that aims to reveal the consequences of global supply chains. The investigative team includes seasoned award-winning journalists leading scholars and students, who are partnering with leading scholars and students to embark on ambitious research and reporting projects. The project is funded by a $2.5 SSHRC Partnership Grant.
