Continuing Public Health Education Seminar

Seminar was organized on 13th June, 2022 from 11:00AM to 1:00PM at Ibrahim Auditorium of BUHS. Two PhD fellows from BASCAP project, Sarmin Sultana from Bangladesh and Julie Bundgaard from Denmark presented their PhD ideas, methods and data collection strategies which reflected the whole project.

Samin Sultana's study title being “How Social Audit requirements are translated into Management behavior in the Ready-made garments industries in Bangladesh?”

Purpose of the study is:

  • • To understand how social audit requirements are 'translated' into management behavior and practice within the RMG industry.
  • • We seek to increase the knowledge of the buyer-supplier relationship in the Bangladeshi ready-made garments (RMG) industry.
  • • Will suggest opportunities for development of the capacity of garments industries to meet buyers' requirements, and thus improve working condition and prevent OHS problems.

Julie presented three articles titles in the seminar which is:

  • 1. What are the effects of social compliance audits in developing and emerging countries? - a systematic literature review.
  • 2. How are social compliance audits carried out in Bangladeshi garment factories, and how do social audits in practice align with intended audit practices?
  • 3. What are garment workers' understandings of social compliance, and what can we learn from workers' expressed needs and priorities in relation to other understandings of social compliance?

Purpose of these studies is:

  • • Understanding what the empirical research says about effects of social audits.
  • • Identify drivers and barriers for positive effects of social audits.
  • • Identify research gaps in relation to effects of social audits.
