The future of work and the economy
The future of work and the availability of sustainable jobs are key global social challenges.
Addressing UN Sustainable Development Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth and Goal 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, our list provides in-depth research into topics from the role of trade unions in the 21st century to the impact of AI and machine learning. Key series in this area include Feminist Perspectives on Work and Organization and Organizations and Activism.
We are proud to support Futures of Work, an online space for radical critiques of the changing world of work. Edited by Harry Pitts, Katie Bales and Huw Thomas, Futures of Work is a free-to-access magazine that connects academic and public commentators in order to discuss the pressing issues of our time.
We are also pleased to announce Work in the Global Economy, an exciting new journal launching in 2021.
