Digitisation - New forms of employment

We are living in the fourth big revolution - the digital revolution. It is changing our society and work environments at breath-taking speed. Many tasks have already been fully automated, with more to follow in the future. Permanent employment in the classic sense is still the norm, but non-typical forms of employment are increasing. (Pseudo) self-employment, platform work, limited contracts - the list is long. Quite often, these forms of employment lead to exploitation and precarious working conditions for workers. We want to show how technical progress and good work can go hand in hand, and why people must always take centre stage.
