UNCC300 - SUPPLEMENTARY ASSESSMENT
Ethical clothing
For your supplementary assessment, you are required to investigate the issues surrounding the ethical production of clothing.
You should focus on these two in your reflection (which you can write in essay form or with subtitles):
1. Write a critique explaining how the common good is challenged or negated by this issue locally and globally (approximately 400 words).
2. Propose two or three ways to address the challenge in order to achieve a more just society (approximately 800 words).
In your answer, you will need to demonstrate your understanding of the Common Good and its relationship to other CST principles, particularly Human Dignity.
NB: You are not required to make reference to all CST principles; 3-5 CST principles will be sufficient. Your discussion should demonstrate how advocacy and community engagement may contribute to your proposed solution.
Readings.
In 2016, we learned that the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh collapsed, killing over 1000 workers. Many survivors sustained serious injuries; some lost limbs. You learn that the factory was used to produce cheap textiles which are exported at considerable profit by the factory owners to countries like the USA. You also learn that most factories of this kind, which employ millions of workers, most of whom are women, are not certified as safe working environments and do not provide good pay and working conditions.
You also learn that although three years have passed since the tragedy, not one conviction has been made, even though the owner, among many others, was charged with murder, and even though the survivors and their families still actively seek justice.
Along with the readings provided in LEO, you may consider the articles below and any further reading you consider relevant to the assessment.
