Three decades ago, the future of trade unionism looked bleak in Southeast Asia, with its large informal-sector workforce and propensity to electoral authoritarianism and outright dictatorship. While trade unions are still weak, key countries in the region have experienced an upsurge in labour activism, in large part as a consequence of their rapid integration into global supply chains. In some countries, this upsurge has been accommodated within the structures of the trade union movement. In others, it has been concentrated outside it. Drawing together scholars of different Southeast Asian labour movements, this discussion panel will explore the drivers and limitations of different forms of labour activism in Southeast Asia and debate the future of trade unionism in the region.
