In the introduction, the Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity (BCWS) provides a background for conceptualizing problems of global injustice (injustice itself), the methodology needed to theorize about how to take responsibility for injustice itself politically (grounded normative theory), and the key features and importance of a human rights approach to a political theory of responsibility. BCWS successfully cultivated arrangements with a Bangladeshi factory, RL Denim, to improve conditions there, with Metro Group to keep production in that garment factory, with workers to develop their understanding of their legal rights and strategies for self-advocacy, and with Clean Clothes Campaign (a worker advocacy network) and BSCI (a factory auditing firm) to support the workers’ desire to keep their jobs under improved factory conditions. The remainder of the chapter clarifies the political perspective of the approach.
