The stakeholders

Read the case study and answer the questions:

  1. Who are the stakeholders in this case and what are their stakes? What are the ethical issues?
  2. Based on your study of the building collapse in Bangladesh, which party or parties do you think are responsible and why?
  3. What role does the government of Bangladesh assume in this building collapse and other safety violations? Do Western companies have an obligation to safeguard the safety of workers in foreign lands where the products they sell are made?
  4. What is the responsibility of consumers to the employees in other countries where our products are made? Is the writer correct that “we quickly forget?” What can consumers do to address this mindset?
