Evaluating a Promising Model of Non-State Labor Regulation: The Case of Cambodia's Apparel Sector

Abstract : Amid growing criticism of private regulation of labor conditions in global supply chains, Cambodia"s apparel sector monitored by the International Labor Organization (ILO) has been heralded as a successful model harnessing public and private authority. While the case has been extensively studied, its institutional mechanism as non-state regulation has not been explicitly evaluated. Based on extensive field-based interviews and participant observation, this chapter shows that the Cambodian model fares better than purely private initiatives in terms of rigor, legitimacy, coordination and capacity building. Nonetheless, it shares some of the weaknesses of private regulation such as lack of accountability, parallel systems and patchy enforcement.
