    Abstract

    Global economy and global social and environmental issues are linked to each other. The paper provides information about the development and the present situation of the textile industry. Furthermore it provides a closer look at global actors and the regulatory frameworks. As products have to meet consumer`s expectations, the industry has various market strategies to meet those. Often human rights are neglected which is also because of market power of multinational firms and lower legal standards in many countries. Global value chains complicate the control of every step taken during the production process. Due to civil rights movements progress had been made in the past. Nowadays firms rely on self-regulation and national regulatory frameworks to protect workers interests in the so called Global South. The paper summarizes some aspects that show the complexity of the topic.
