The aim of this paper is to investigate the rationales for the tobacco

growing sector, more specifically British American Tobacco (BAT), to adopt a particular approach to managing and addressing human rights, particularly child labour, in supply chains. In order to achieve this outcome, causes and consequences of child labour will be analysed, as well as international labour standards, legislation, industry self-regulation and some models or approaches to tackling the problem. These topics are crucial to situating the issue in the worldwide scenario. The supply chain approach utilised by BAT, the company chosen for this paper's case study, will be explained in greater detail. Finally, the

report will use what was named by Leeson (2000) (cited in Winstanley, et al,2002)Three-I model in an attempt to contextualize the data gathered, and to reach the outcome of the present research.
