Campaign Highlights

  • Uyghur Forced Labor Act. A bill led by IPAC members Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Jeff Merkley would implement a policy of ‘presumptive rebuttal’ on imports from the Xinjiang region, with importers having to prove that their goods have not been produced with forced labour.

  • EU-China CAI investment deal. IPAC Members co-authored a European Parliament resolution calling on China’s ratification of ILO forced labour conventions as a minimum condition for agreement to the EU-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI). Parliamentary interventions from IPAC Members in Germany, France, Italy and Belgium have echoed these calls.

  • Supply Chains Legislation. IPAC submitted evidence to the UK Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, giving recommendations for changes to modern slavery legislation requiring companies to act on forced labour concerns in the Uyghur region. Efforts to bring forward Mandatory Human Rights Due Diligence in the European Parliament and supply chains due diligence in Japan have also been led by IPAC Members.
