LABOUR
Tacking informal employment in Asia: building post-COV19 solutions to precariousness through case-study based evidence on Bhutan, Laos, Maldives, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam
Descrição

According to the last WESO report, there are over 1.4bn workers in vulnerable jobs worldwide, with numbers expected to

rise in 2020 due to COVID-19. Several attempts have been made at both domestic and international levels to address these

concerns. This includes efforts through the Sustainable Development Goals process, which includes a specific statistical

indicator to measure informal employment (8.3.1), the formulation of SDG8 (decent work) and SDG9 (sustainable

industrialization). Across countries and world regions, the degree to which SDGs have been used to address youth issues

and inform national policies varies significantly. Indeed, in spite of the fact that the great majority of states have formally

committed to addressing the SDGs, including those related to insecure employment, there is little evidence to indicate that

developing regions currently have the capacity to systematically study the problems if informal employment and vulnerability

in ways that facilitate the development and implementation of concrete viable solutions. This is due, in our view, to two major

challenges. First, although a number of approaches that have been used inside the EU, there has been little, if any, attempt

to adapt the existing framework elsewhere. Second, no systematic review of anti-precariousness policy has been attempted

beyond the EU region. LABOUR is a research and training programme designed to address the above-mentioned shortfalls

of research and development approaches with particular attention to a region where this is particularly worrying concern.

Informal employment in Asia is estimated to account for 68.2% of the active population. By gathering a team of 14

participants that includes academic and non-academic partners working on labour insecurity, we aim not only at producing

specialists on the topic and on the region but also at proposing concrete mitigation measures that can be taken into account

by decision-makers and development organisations.
