From the press release:

The Center supports a rigorous academic research agenda on sweatshops, labor standards, and precarious work,  and partners with both activists and practitioners in support of workers' rights, collective representation, social activism,  and on-going efforts to hold accountable those who permit poor and dangerous work conditions, and  violations of workers’ organizing rights.  It also sponsors a Post-Doctoral Scholar each year.
