Asian Labour Review

​ About Us

Asian Labour Review (ALR) aims to be a broadly-based and independent platform for analysis and exchange of views about and for labour movements across Asia. We see ALR as contributing toward building stronger and more united Asian labour movements by taking on key issues and questions and sharing perspectives and experiences.

ALR comprises of an online publication and an annual journal. The online publication will focus on publishing relatively short articles on a regular basis to capture and provide analysis about ongoing events and developments; the annual journal will be devoted to producing long-form essays that engage with critical debates.
