In diesem Know geht es um die Thematik des Boykottieren durch den Konsumenten und ob dies wirklich etwas nützt oder das Problem der ungerechten Arbeitsverhältnis an manchen Orten doch nicht löst.

Should we support consumer boycotts or not and why ? Pros -Working conditions in EPZ factories are absolutely unacceptable -Large brand companies have too much power over their contractors in poor countries ; must be pressured by western consumers to guarantee human working conditions -NGOs cannot monitor all factories -One must show solidarity with workers in backward countries who fight for their rights Cons -Workers could lose their jobs and fall even deeper into misery. A job is precisely what they want! -Workers freely work in factories as they have not been educated to exercise other jobs -Boycott might be unrealistic? There is hardly an alternative to textiles produced by poor people (Third World Shops are rare) -Boycott might not be efficient? NGOs = non-governmental organisations EPZ = export processing zone / free trade zone Short talk I find it very difficult to judge whether consumer boycotts are good or bad. On the one hand, the aim is to improve working conditions and the safety of workers. On the other hand, the workers usually have no choice but to work in these jobs under bad conditions because they do not receive enough education in their countries to get other opportunities.

to find a better solution than a boycott. We should still take something into our own hands and watch out for what we buy. There are also many NGOs trying to improve something, but it is impossible for them to monitor all the factories in the world. Instead of trying to deny your purchases to disliked companies, we should invest our time and energy (and money) in supporting the companies that uphold the principles we do agree with. It is a seemingly subtle (small) shift in consumer activism, but an important one in my opinion.

Vielen Dank, wirklich hilfreich für mich, da wir gerade genau das Thema in der Schule haben 😁
