Summary This book represents a unique study which reviews employment conditions in Asia and the Pacific in the context of globalization and increasing pressure towards flexibilization. It places a strong focus on the diverging experiences of individual workers in their employment conditions such as employment status, wages/incomes, working time, work organizations and health and safety. Along with thematic studies concerning the roles of workers voice and labour regulation in determining employment conditions, this book includes nine country studies which have been undertaken based on a common research framework for a more rigorous comparison in the region. A systematic review of employment conditions in the countries which are carefully selected in the region. National-level analysis based on a common research framework. A highly analytical and timely analysis of workers voice and labour regulation with respect to employment conditions.
