This multimedia dossier explores the production chain of smartphones. In particular due to the violation of workers' rights and low payments, the author Benjamin Selwyn calls those production structures global poverty chains. He explains how they are linked to global wealth concentration and asks how those poverty chains can be broken. In this context, he points to the importance of workers' struggles an elaborates on the concept of a labour-centered development.
