Assignment part 1 : define the social hotspots of your clothing/product
Look up in the label where your clothing is manufactured (made inTurkey or China or India, etc), you may also select a different product than clothing
Use appendix A of Ashby et all et all, 2019.
Chose a stakeholder of your interest and lookup in minimal 3 sources of this stakeholder the possible social issues with the production of your clothing/product
If you chose consumer as a stakeholder then perform the analysis for the country that you will most likely use and dispose of this garment/product
If you use other value chain actors e.g. the supplier, find out at which locations the supplier is based.
If you cannot find it, you may make an assumption that you clarify (use sources for that)
What advice do want to give the manufacturer of your researched clothing/product based on the outcome of your simplified Hotspot Assessment?
