IGF 2017 Panel: Is the Gig Economy Working for Developing Countries?

As part of the Internet Governance Forum 2017 held in Geneva December 17-21, the FoWiGS initiative organized the panel "Is the Gig Economy Working for Developing Countries?". The panel brought current research and relevant stakeholders to discuss how work is changing in the age of AI and the emergence of digital labor platforms, and how different stakeholders (workers, governments, civil society, industry) are responding to these changes. The panel was co-organized by Hernan Galperin (USC/DIRSI) and Helani Galpaya (LirneAsia), and included academics, policymakers and private sector representatives.
