BOOK Violent borders by Reece Jones
Initial Post ( At lest200 words)
For Chapter 6, continue to identify the author’s main points, important or compelling evidence, and integration of different perspectives. Given the international scope of this issue and Jones’ limited focus on Bangladesh (in terms of examples provided), conduct some follow-up research for this post that explores working conditions in countries other than Bangladesh and in industries that rely on resources and cheap labor from these countries. Share some of your work, both from Chapter 6 and your research, identifying one of each of the following:
- Share one of the more compelling or significant points the author made in this chapter
- Share important or compelling evidence (one for each type):
- Personal Experience
- Outside Authorities
- Factual References and Examples
- Share the different perspectives the author draws on to illustrate the issue discussed
- Share some follow-up research that adds onto the global scope of the issue discussed in this chapter. (Jones largely talks about the textile industry as he focuses on the Rana Plaza incident as his central example. What other industries exploit borders for cheap labor and are complicit in worker exploitation and human rights abuses?)
