The Indonesian Labour Rights Project
From 1997–2013, Oxfam Australia’s Indonesian Labour Rights Project (ILRP) worked to help achieve ‘sustainable livelihoods for workers’ in factories in Indonesia that form part of global supply chains for major sportswear brands. As a result of sustained campaigns, the world’s largest sportswear brands, such as Nike and Adidas, now take workers’ rights more seriously than a great majority of other transnational companies, including smaller sportswear companies. The ILRP illustrates an important aspect of Oxfam’s work on active citizenship – supporting the rights and agency of people in the workplace.
This case study evaluates the ILRP to explore how change happens and help inform future active citizenship programme design and ways of working. This publication forms part of a series of Active Citizenship Case Studies.
