The Centre Releases a New Study on Migrant Parents and COVID-19 in China’s Export Manufacturing Industry on Dec 15

The Centre (formerly CCR CSR) released a new study titled "Getting Through a Pandemic – Migrant Parents and COVID-19 in China’s Export Manufacturing Industry" at a virtual launch event on December 15, 2020 aimed towards Asia and Australia-based businesses, followed by a second launch on January 13, 2021 for European and US businesses. 


Much has happened in the three years since our last study on the topic of migrant parent workers. Government policies in China affecting migrant families have changed; many more factories across multiple industries have worked with us on worker well-being programmes, and of course COVID-19 hit the world disrupting industry and closing schools. The global pandemic has highlighted how one crisis can quickly tip businesses and supply chains into an era of uncertainty whilst exposing the vulnerabilities of migrant workers and families.   


About the study 


“Getting through a Pandemic” explores the impact of the pandemic on working families in China’s factories from a multitude of angles, but it also examines the changes that have taken place since our last study in 2017 and what that means for brands, buyers and factories. Our latest study is based on data from 73 factories, 2137 workers and 13 children, drawing on surveys and in-depth interviews.
