Re-regulation of the taxi market

Together with Institute of Transport Economics (TØI), Fafo will map out the consequences of the re-regulation of the Norwegian taxi market. The project is initiated by TØI and Fafo, and financed by Yrkestrafikkforbundet (YTF), the Norwegian Taxi Association, LO and TØI.

All the way - a new path towards full-time culture

In this project, the municipalities of Drammen, Fredrikstad, and the district Østensjø in Oslo will try out new methods to develop a ‘fulltime culture’ in municipal services. Fafo will contribute with expertise through a research approach inspired by ‘formative dialogue research’. The project’s aim is to increase the full-time share of employees from approx. 30 to nearly 90 percent, reducing involuntary part-time work as well as temporary work. 

Economic incentives and integration of refugees

In 2019, Fafo and Frisch formulated three proposals for the use of financial incentives in the integration work for refugees and immigrants.

Union representatives - a gender perspective
The purpose of the project is to study union representatives and the careers of women and men in two LO associations with special emphasis on women's election careers.
Freelancers, independent contractors and the organization of work
On behalf of The Research Council of Norway, Fafo, in collaboration with SNF (Centre for Applied research at Norwegian School of Economics - NHH) and Linköping University, will investigate the organization of the work for freelancers and independent contractors.
Refugees for Development

There are 68.5 million forcibly displaced people worldwide, of which 25.4 million are displaced outside their countries of origin. Since the Second World War, the dominant response to refugees has been providing food, shelter and basic services to refugee populations, primarily in designated camps and in most part through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). This "care and maintenance" model has led to unfair burdens on countries hosting refugees and has frustrated international donors that cover the direct financial costs of the support, particularly in situations of protracted displacement where refugee populations live in exile for five consecutive years or more after their initial displacement, and which has been become the norm. 

The Impact of Digitalization on Work and Labour Markets in the Nordics and the U.S.

In cooperation with the University of Gothenburg, Michigan State University, and MIT, we will examine ongoing restructuring processes related to digitalization of work in Norway, Sweden and the U.S, the effects on labour market institutions and vice versa.
