The future of digital employment and working conditions in Europe: What does the new internet/data economy means for services and work developments?



FEPS Office, Rue Montoyer 40, 1000 Brussels

The transition towards a post-industrial, service-centered and digitalized economy is eroding traditional employment models while weighing heavily on working conditions and labor standards. Yet, such new modes of economic production and exchange make usual forms of market regulation and policy intervention less effective in rebalancing the asymmetries in the workforce. This workshop is intended to lay out recent trends and challenges in job developments associated with the economic and service industry digitalization. This will be followed by an interactive discussion regarding policies that can effectively address disparities and unfairness in working conditions, without curtailing the gains emerging from these new economic trends.
