The Carr Center is delighted to host Martha Chen and Marlese Broembsen to discuss their new paper exploring solutions to address violations of the rights of homeworkers. 

Chen and Broembsen will argue that realizing labor rights for homeworkers requires overlapping human rights instruments at multiple levels, including: strong movements of informal workers, and the participation of homeworker organizations in the design and implementation of these instruments.
