The thesis deals with corporate responses to the Rana Plaza building collapse and compares the efforts that have been made within the two major frameworks that emerged after the event: the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety and the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety. It is designed as a comparative case study, which aims to provide a deeper understanding regarding what has been done by Western companies, local manufacturers, labor unions, and the Bangladeshi government until today and what still needs to be done in order to create sustainable change in working conditions in the Bangladeshi clothing industry.
