This World Leaders Forum program features a moderated panel discussion from leaders in the corporate sector, academia, civil society, and media to exchange ideas about the treatment of workers in developing countries. As outsourcing of labor-intensive production from rich to developing countries grows, controversy also grows over how best to ensure that employees are treated with respect and dignity, and receive a fair and reasonable wage for their labor. Is this the responsibility of the corporations accountable for outsourcing? The discussion will be followed by a moderated question and answer session with the audience.
