This thesis is comparative analysis of countries and their economical, social, activists, and legislative pressures set for the removal of human rights abuses within the fashion industry. The objective of this project is to illustrate how the fashion industry has suffered many different types of human right violations and how certain countries have handled and/or enabled them. This analysis uses resources including: articles, books, novels, videos, photos, and many other publications to explain the severity of the mistreatments and abuses placed upon workers, employees, and other stakeholders working for fashion corporations. Although this thesis is aimed and centralized on the fashion industry, human rights are a prominent issue worldwide regardless of industry. Throughout this research, the reader will be exposed to how certain influences have hindered or encouraged these abuses and what countries have intervened to protect their citizens. Historical background as well as positive implementations are given and elucidated to show the audience how long these violations have existed as well as how to overcome them. The hope is that this project will inspire those within the fashion industry and others to overlook easy and fast profit with the intent to respect workers, worldwide citizens, and their rights when creating products for the market.
