Asian Labour Review is annual journal concerning labour in Asia. It is a response to the increasing demand among activists, students, academics, policy makers and international communities for more inclusive and comprehensive understanding of the far-changing living and working conditions of people in Asia, of the collective endeavours by the people to improve such conditions, and of the implication of this contested process on overall social, political and economic development in Asia.
In Asian Labour Review, labour is not considered merely as jobs for living, nor is it presented as a mere input or factor of production to be effectively mobilised for a more affluent world. Instead, labour is a vehicle and perspective to think and theorise around other issues such as rural development, migration, and industrial relations. In doing so, we are using labour as the entry point to understanding production and reproduction of our society as a whole.
Asian Labour Review is prepared to provide a forum for a new generation of labour researchers who are willing to work with ground movements and be part of it. We are pleased to offer an outlet to make a stronger network of new generation of activists and academics working on labour in Asia.
