Abstract

The labour movements in Southeast Asia, and Malaysia in particular, have been shaped by colonial legacies, the cold war and the development models of strong state and export manufacturing industries tied to global markets (Ford 2013b). The labour literature from scholars such as Brown and Chatyaweep (2008) and Ford (2013b) argues that Southeast Asian states play a significant role in the de-unionization process to further their development plans.
