Begun in 2002 in Beijing with the objective of providing an arena for researchers and policy makers to explore labor issues in the three Northeast Asian countries, the Northeast Asia Labor Forum is held in one of the three countries each year, in rotation. The twelfth meeting, in 2014, will be held in Japan.
