Labour Resistance in Asia: A Proceeding Report

The two-day meeting focused on understanding and mapping the landscape of labour resistance in Asia in the past decade or so, with a special focus on identifying, in each country, (1) emerging forms of labour resistance, (2) emerging actors and players in new labour movements, and (3) trends in emerging alliance building and collaborative initiatives. The method of exploring these subjects is mainly through the presentation of relevant case studies from each country, contextualized within the larger framework of that country’s current labour situation and the history of its labour movement. After which, there was a synthesis and consolidation of the presentations, with attempts to identify (1) commonalities, (2) peculiarities, and, finally, (3) lessons from each experience which could be useful for participants, especially in terms of strategies and tactics in organizing and other modes of engagement, all toward further empowering the ranks of the labour movement.
