Work packages

The project consists of four thematic work packages:

All four work packages critically overview and analyse German and international literature dealing with the effects of automation and the platform economy on the reorganisation and re-regulation of employment.

The findings of the project will focus on:

  • labour market trends driven by technology in the areas of employment, remuneration and qualifications;
  • the challenges of e-commerce;
  • the role of the platform economy for the re-regulation of employment relations and business models;
  • recent approaches to labour regulation.
