Nordisk ministerråd

Major changes in technology, economic contexts and institutions of work are nothing new and have come in ebb and flow since well before the first industrial revolution in the 18th century.

Yet, many argue that this time it is different and that technology will completely change our views on work.

In this project Fafo – in collaboration with researchers from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, and Sweden – will study how digitalization and the emergence of new forms of employment and digital platforms might influence the future of work in the Nordic countries.

Central research questions are:

  • What are the main drivers of change?
  • How does digitalization affect jobs and occupations in the labor market?
  • How do emerging forms of non-standard employment affect the Nordic model?
  • How do we measure these new forms of non-standard employment relations?
  • What characterizes the development of platform companies operating in the Nordic countries?
  • What distinguishes the motives, working conditions, characteristics, and socioeconomic situation of platform labour?
  • In what ways are the governments and the social partners in the Nordic countries responding to digitalization, platform work and new forms of employment?
  • What are the consequences and challenges for the working environment in the Nordic countries?

The project is funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers and will lead up to the ILO’s centenary anniversary on the Future of Work in 2019.
