The INET Future of Work Series
The Future of Work is an INET webinar series that brings together diverse voices to discuss the impact of technology on the economy and society. We host prominent thinkers, policy-makers, and scholars from different backgrounds and countries to present and debate their views.

As technology continues to disrupt industries globally, the nature and future of work will be impacted by decisions and policies being made today. What are the social costs and benefits that technology will bear on economies already transformed by globalization and what are the implications to labor markets and social welfare? Can we get ahead of the next transformational revolution?

The follow-up sessions are open to anyone interested in further conversation and exploration of the themes the main session touched upon, so please feel free to join! The sessions will be moderated by members of the Young Scholars Initiative. Early career scholars and/or professionals will serve as discussants of the main session to briefly prepare for fruitful discussion in which each participant can equally engage.

Anyone interested in developing deeper engagement and projects is especially encouraged to join. If you have further ideas or research questions that you would like to share feel free to post them in the form mentioned before.
