New Book: Mobilities of Labour and Capital in Asia

Congratulations to Preet S. Aulakh (Schulich School of Business) and Philip F. Kelly (Geography) on their new edited collection. Mobilities of Labour and Capital in Asia, published by Cambridge University Press.

It explores the mobilities of capital and labour in the contemporary global economy, with a particular focus on Asia. Using an analytical framework around three dimensions related to the forms, institutions and spatialities of mobility, the chapters use a variety of sub-national, national and transnational sites within and beyond Asia to examine the interrelationships between mobilities of capital and labour at multiple levels of analyses.

The book is the product of a joint YCAR-Schulich workshop, Asian Connections: Linking Mobilities of Capital and Labour in Theory and Practice, held in 2017 at York. The book includes an introduction by the editors and a chapter on Philippine property development by YCAR Graduate Associate Kenneth Cardenas (Geography).
