      Type of Event: SeminarAbstract

      This talk is about the labour conditions in a globalized production networks, taking Taiwanese factory labour regime as an example to know the impact of globalization on local workers. I will talk about the causes, the process, and the outcome of strikes in Taiwanese companies, and will also show how Taiwanese capital using different strategies to curb labour disputes. I argue that under current global production process, it is hard for the middleman countries like Taiwan or Korea to change their management practices, which are the deep structural causes for labour unrest in the foreign capital receiving countries.
