Abstract
The “Industrial Relations in China: the Evolving Nature of Labour Law Reform” project will permit a greater understanding of the governance of labour reform as China continues its rapid market integration. Indeed, it is now the case that in China, the concept of governance is increasingly diffusing among alternative stakeholders, such as international corporations. This project will demonstrate that labour reform is moving away from traditional state-centric frameworks, and toward the private sector delivery of labour reform compliance. By examining the concept of governance in China through the lens of labour reform, the emerging issues related to China’s integration into the world economy are clearer. This project outlines the strengths and weaknesses of both domestic and international labour reform frameworks, and allows the reader to understand the primary drivers of labour reform, especially in the labour-intensive export-oriented development zones of South China.
