The Future of Digital Work: The Challenge of Inequality

IFIP Joint Working Conference : 10-11 December 2020 : Hyderabad, India

Digital technologies, so much more than mere ‘tools,’ seep into and shape our everyday lives in unprecedented, hence uncharted, manners. Digitalization is both an enabler and multiplier for the far-reaching transformation of private and professional lives, at individual, community, organizational, industry-wide and societal levels.  However, digital transformation also raises challenges of better or worse quality of life and work, social inclusion/exclusion, (non)discrimination, (un)employment, and civic (non)participation. This conference seeks to address these issues.
