Better factories Cambodia: an instrument for improving industrial relations in a transnational context

Globalization of production has created an environment for labor-management relations that involves international actors and spans countries. This paper analyses the case of the International Labour Organization’s Better Factories Cambodia (BFC) project as a transnational instrument to create the institutional space for industrial relations in Cambodia. Based on the principle of social dialogue among the partners (the national government and workers’ and employers’ organizations) as well as with global buyers, BFC’s multistakeholder approach reaches beyond the workplace and may be a key instrument of industrial relations. The empirical results reveal some strengths of the program.
