Changing Labour Relations in Asia

Asian economies and societies have attracted close attention from policy makers, international development institutions and researchers during the post-war era. There is a multitude of reasons for this, including their strategic geo-political location, population size and density, markets and resources and their colonial links with the West. The changing labour relations in these countries have also attracted some attention, though this has often focused on management aspects and tended to ignore the historical and cultural context, or been inspired by a certain measure of orientalism.
The aim of the present programme is to examine these changing labour relations in greater depth.
