Chapter 24: State extraterritorial regulation and decent work in the Asia Pacific
There is a growing recognition that state extraterritorial regulation can play an important role in improving respect for labour and human rights standards within transnational supply chains. To date, however, analysis of state practice in this context has focused overwhelmingly on Europe and North America. This chapter examines the extent to which, and how, states in the Asia Pacific seek to encourage large businesses to take responsibility for working conditions within their transnational business activities and relationships. It also seeks to explain why state-based legal and policy initiatives directed at promoting responsible business conduct abroad appear so limited in the region.
