The Policy Supply Chain: Conflict Minerals and Preparing for Mandated Ethical Sourcing [PRO]

In the first brief in this research series, Economic and Policy Supply Chain: The “Non-Invisible Hand”, we covered the increasing importance for procurement organizations of looking at economic and policy issues focused on the “Non-Invisible Hand” as we termed it.
