FUTURE OF WORK REVISITED

PLATFORM WORK IN THE AGE OF AI

For many years, Ukraine, Serbia, and Romania have been leading providers of digital labour workers in Europe and beyond. With the outbreak of COVID-19, other Eastern and Southeastern European countries have followed suit. However, the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the rise of AI have significantly impacted the platform work across these regions, touching upon professional, social and organizational aspects.

To explore the profound changes unfolding in the world of platform work, we invite you to join us at the Regional Reshaping Work 2024 conference in Belgrade and investigate the transformative shifts in platform work and their impact on workers, businesses, and societies in Eastern and Southeastern Europe.

Over two dynamic days, we will bring together an array of stakeholders, including academics, legal and policy experts, worker representatives, worker advocates, and companies. During this conference, we will embark on a journey to explain the complex intersections between evolving technologies, skills development, and the changing work environment in the context of platform economy. We will critically analyse these unfolding trends from different conceptual and practical perspectives, with the aim to uphold the principles of decent work in the platform economy and work in Southeastern and Eastern Europe in the context of challenges posed by the fast-emerging, technology driven future.
