Challenging the Chip: Labor Rights and Environmental Justice in the Global Electronics Industry

“Challenging the Chip” is the first comprehensive examination of the impacts of electronics manufacturing on workers and local environments around the world. The essays in this volume contribute to a collaborative international discourse of citizens, workers, health professionals, academics, labour leaders, environmental activists, and others with the common goal of developing alternative visions for the regulation and sustainable development of manufacturing, assembly/disassembly, and waste disposal in the global electronics industry. Contributors from Asia, North America, Europe, and Latin America provide multidimensional perspectives on the science and the politics of environmental and social justice, documenting the efforts of community and labour activists, government agencies, and others in introducing more sustainable systems of production to one of the world’s largest manufacturing industries.”Challenging the Chip” is the first comprehensive examination of the impacts of electronics manufacturing on workers and local environments around the world.
