Who Makes Your iPhone? China Migration, Labor, and Human Rights

April 04, 2012 • 12:15 PM • Law School 3041

Do you ever wonder who builds your iPhone? The New York Times and other news media have focused their attention recently on manufacturing trends in China and the globalization of U.S. companies such as Apple. Recent migration shifts to manufacturing centers in China have helped fuel the profit margins of companies such as Apple through an unprecedented supply of labor. Duke Law's Program in Public Law and Center for International and Comparative Law, along with the Kenan Institute for Ethics and the Triangle China Forum on Urbanization and Migration, host an exciting panel discussion on the complex geopolitical, labor, and human rights issues surrounding China's economic revolution. This event will be webcast. For more information, please contact Dana Norvell at norvell@law.duke.edu.
