Cufa’s podcast series, Conversations in Development, will soon be covering child labour. The podcast provides a unique opportunity for listeners to stay informed about key issues in the development field with input from special guests. Previously, the podcast has covered the relationship between aid and conflict, and Australia’s foreign aid.
The upcoming episode will focus on child labour and is released shortly after the recent World Day Against Child Labour, which focuses attention on the global extent of child labour and the action required to eliminate it.
This episodes guest, Brynn O’Brien, is a lawyer, strategist and advocate. She is currently the Executive Director at the Australasian Centre for Corporate Responsibility, a non-profit organisation that works to promote better performance of Australian companies on human rights, environmental and governance issues.
In the episode, Brynn takes on some of the complex issues behind child labour. She covers supply chains, the link between big business and exploitation, consumer behaviour and examines how it would be possible to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goal of eliminating child labour by 2025.
