Future of Work in the Global South (FoWiGS)
Computerization and automation are fundamentally changing the very nature of work, to the point where there is increased concern about its ultimate impact on global welfare. Will automation aggravate unemployment by making many jobs obsolete? Which jobs are likely to emerge and what skills will be in demand for jobs in the future? What will be the impact of the gig economy for workers in emerging economies?
The Future of Work in Developing Countries is a research intiative that seeks to answer these questions by promoting evidence-based research on the implications of digitization and the automation of work in developing countries.
