[Excerpt] The Workers in the Global Economy project is part of a growing international labor rights movement. This movement brings together researchers, policy analysts, and advocates in trade unions and allied NGOs who want to make social justice the touchstone of an integrated international economy. Participants in the WGE project hope it contributes new understanding of the global economy and how it affects workers. More important, we hope that it gives labor rights advocates tools to change the effects of globalization on working people around the world.
