N2 - This chapter presents a political economy of labour migration in Southeast Asia by examining the specific sectoral interests that underpin governance, and associated tensions and conflicts. Despite its importance to national development and individual livelihoods in Southeast Asia, labour migration has been poorly and unevenly governed.
