  • Bangladesh is the second largest textile exporter in the world, but the working conditions of this industry have been questioned by several international actors especially after the collapse of the Rana Plaza building. Several garment factories were located at this building, which fell on April the 13th, 2013, killing 1134 workers. The objective of this research is to analyze the way in which the national and international initiatives motivated by the collapse, have transformed the working conditions of the Bangladesh garment industry. I analyze the effects of the main reactions of the government, the international organizations, and the commercial partners of Bangladesh during the two years subsequent to the collapse. This research is made up through a qualitative method and takes into account the results of each action in order to determine whether in fact these national and international initiatives foster the transformation of the working conditions of the majority of the textile industry workers of Bangladesh.
