Shrimp Market Competition and Slave Labour in Southeast Asia

We just finished our commodity chain term projects in GENV 2201: Geography of Economic Activity. Groups documents the different stages of each chain from the beginning to end use. It was an interesting project and in the video below it is clear that knowing the source and steps of commodity chains does have practical and moral implications.
