Reforming Asian Labor Systems

Frederic C. Deyo

Cornell University Press

This chapter examines the reregulatory face of labor market reform by focusing on social accommodation as it relates to labor markets and social policy. More specifically, it considers how Asian governments have sought to manage the tensions associated with labor market reregulation by redirecting, institutionally consolidating, and socially buffering economic reform. The chapter first explores efforts to enhance the functioning of labor markets and goes on to analyze the contractualization of labor markets and active labor market policies aimed at institutionalizing and enhancing the functioning of flexible labor markets in order to improve competitive efficiencies. It then looks at policies of social protection that are oriented to a concern for economic livelihood and political stability. It also describes the institutionalization of new worker entrepreneurialism by combining labor market policy and social policy. The chapter concludes with an assessment of social reproduction that puts emphasis on education and training.
