This episode examines other examples of government-imposed forced labor, beyond Xinjiang. We speak to Bennett Freeman, an expert on business and human rights and a former US State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary, about the coalition that has made great strides in addressing government-imposed forced labor in Uzbekistan. We talk to Bennett as well as Penelope Kyritsis of the Workers Rights Consortium to better understand whether the tools used to make progress in Uzbekistan can be translated to the Xinjiang context.
