The videos below are part of the GLU online course “Global Supply Chains in Times of Covid-19”.

This free online course provides unionists, scholars, and practitioners from around the world with critical knowledge on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on workers in global supply chains and labour’s response to protect workers. The course also explores some of the key questions in rethinking the global supply chains as well as labour proposals and policy measures to build them anew.
