  1. an investigation of the social and environmental disclosure practices of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA)

  2. an investigation of the social and environmental disclosure practices of two major multinational buying companies: Nike and H&M

  3. an exploration of possible drivers for the media agenda in reporting the activities of multinationals and NGOs.
