Walsh, John, “Prospects for Workers under the ASEAN Economic Community,” in Dr.Panchanatham and Mrs.Jayalakshmi, eds., Occupational Hazards and Welfare Measures – A Labor Perspective (Bangalore: Archers and Elevators, 2013 forthcoming).
The ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) is due to be inaugurated in 2015 and will provide greater cross-border mobility for skilled workers in some categories of employment. To what extent will this and other changes have an impact on the workplace conditions for workers in all categories across the region of Southeast Asia? This paper seeks to identify the basic patterns of change in employment conditions in ASEAN and use these to highlight prospective future changes.
