13. Project background: Why is the project taking place? Why is the need form the project?Given its enormous market power in procurement, public authorities could make an important contribution to a socially sustainable globalization. But social criteria are rarely used in public tenders in Europe. A major part of the products procured are still manufactured in developing countries under disregard of workers’ rights. The reason: Procurement staff lack necessary skills, alternative products are missing and there are legal uncertainties. The project aims at tackling these challenges.
