Labour in Southeast Asia: Local Processes in a Globalised World
Becky Elmhirst, Ratna Saptari
Taylor & Francis, May 7, 2004 - Political Science - 416 pages
In seeking to provoke debate, the book reveals the variety of experiences evident in countries and regions marked by capitalist and (post) socialist regulatory frameworks, and contrasting labour regimes, histories and cultures. The contributions show the importance of critically examining both the complex nature of global-local links and the particular ways economic processes are around the themes of labour regimes, labour processes, labour mobility and labour communities, the essays show how economic development is not only shaped by market forces but is also interlocked in systems of meaning.
