— theme: Social Dialogue, Tripartism, Collective Bargaining, Workers Organizations, Employment Relationship
— country: ASEAN
— type: Working Papers

This paper offers ideas for the roadmap to ASEAN economic integration to achieve decent work, by securing the inclusion of workers and their voice through the unions. The first sections provide an analysis of efforts to achieve regional integration in ASEAN, along with the emerging web of regional, bilateral and multilateral free trade agreements. The paper then identifies potential impacts of these efforts on labor, and the representation of workers voice through unions in the ASEAN. Finally, recommendations are offered to overcome the deficit in worker voice in ASEAN.
