Abstract

La fin des Accords Multi- Fibres (AMF) en 2005 a donné lieu à une reconfiguration des chaînes de valeur internationales ainsi qu'à des transformations importantes dans la fabrication de vêtements, qui ont produit des gagnants et des perdants, tant parmi les pays que les travailleurs. Sur la base d'informations collectées au moyen d'entretiens ouverts et d'un questionnaire auprès d'ouvriers, cet article se penche sur la survie de l'industrie du vêtement aux Philippines dans l'ère post-AMF. Une attention particulière est portée à trois groupes de femmes ayant formé des coopératives de fabrication à Manille afin de sauvegarder leur emploi dans ce secteur en déclin. L'article démontre comment celles-ci ont pu en conséquence maintenir un emploi, et identifie les leçons de cette expérience pour la main d'oeuvre féminine dans des situations semblables ailleurs. Ce faisant, il contribue à un agenda de recherche sur la manière dont les dynamiques productives internationales peuvent avoir un impact sur la situation de la main d'oeuvre féminine travaillant en aval des chaînes de valeur internationales.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 362–376. doi:10.1057/ejdr.2009.10
