Event Summary: Digitization and the Future of Work workshop

On June 15-16, 2017, IDRC hosted an event titled “Digitization and the Future of Work: Building a development-oriented research agenda’”. The purpose of this event was to convene key stakeholders and thought leaders from across academia, government, industry and multilateral organizations to examine the social, economic, and ethical implications posed by two interrelated trends: 1) the increasing automation of routine jobs, and 2) the emergence of online platforms that facilitate part-time, non-standard labor arrangements.
