The digital transformation of society over the last 20 years has occurred at a time when individuals' relationship to work has been profoundly altered by the neoliberal ideology encouraging new forms of employment (freelance work, self-employment, etc.) and new work-related values (autonomy, initiative, "agility", etc.).
These two concurrent changes have forced social science researchers to rethink the relationship to work in the digital age, and the ways it is realized, framed, and perceived by those doing it.
Université Paris Dauphine – PSL conducts various research projects in this area, with a particular focus on two topics:
- new forms of work tied to cooperative economics
- the digital transformations of working conditions
