Forced labor of children and adults in Uzbekistan. How effective is the OECD complaint mechanism?
ECCHR Study, May 2013
The study is an evaluation of our seven OECD complaints against European companies that trade in cotton from Uzbekistan. Cotton there is harvested under the massive use of state-organized forced labor of children and adults. All procedures have been completed. We took this as an opportunity to comprehensively evaluate the impact of the complaints on the situation in Uzbekistan and the effectiveness of the OECD complaint mechanism as such.
