Abstract:The Philippine state, as a labor broker produces, distributes and regulates Filipino migrants, as citizen-workers, globally. As a labor brokering state the Philippine government produces and distributes workers for various types of capital and their attendant flexible labor regimes, privatizing states, and nascent middle-classes making it one of the world's top exporters of temporary labor. Yet, the state does not merely produce and distribute workers, but citizens who are endowed with protections and who are, simultaneously, also expected to fulfill national obligations as Filipinos regardless of their country of employment. The state therefore, must regulate its citizen-workers transnationally to ensure that they remit their earnings back home. At the same time, the state must also extend regulations or protections of its citizen-workers transnationally because it cannot merely export migrants as commodified bodies of labor. Indeed, the state had initially instituted a purely "labor exporting" apparatus, but that apparatus was thrown into major crisis as Philippine migrants mobilized transnationally demanding more protections from the state. The state therefore created a new "labor brokering" apparatus that has proven to be an effective means of managing migration. The Labor Brokering State is based primarily on qualitative research including ethnography and interviews conducted in the Philippines and Brunei from May 2000 to September 2001. I conducted ethnographic research of the Philippine state's migration apparatus, what I call the "bureaucratic assembly line," and a migrant grass-roots organization, Migrante International. In these two keys sites I also conducted interviews, both formal and informal, with state representatives and migrant workers. Through my work in The Labor Brokering State, I contribute to the globalization and transnational literature, which either reifies capital flows from "above" or in opposition to this scholarship, examines transnationalism from "below." I argue, alternatively, that the state plays a central role linking and mediating between these two processes.
