ILO's Network on Future of Work

It is vital that the future of work debates should be based on the indepth research and analysis available around the globe. The Future of Work Network as a global knowledge centre aims to share information with and learn from other leading thinkers and their work on the future of work and thus help the constituents of the ILO shape a more inclusive, fair and greener world of work.

Network research and analysis

  1. Working Paper

    Decent Work and the Digital Gig Economy

    Manchester Centre for Development Informatics

    This paper presents a review of current evidence and ideas relating to the digital gig economy, aiming at systematically reviewing both impacts and recommendations for the digital gig economy in order to create a union list of standards.

  2. Paper

    Non-standard forms of employment: Recent trends and future prospects


    Focusing on the growth of non-standard employment over the last decade, this paper finds that, apart from part-time work, there has not been an increase in non-standard employment during this time. However, both temporary contracts and self-employment grew, quite strongly in some Eurofound's Member States.

  3. Report

    Developments in working life in Europe 2016: EurWORK annual review


    Eurofound’s annual review collates information based on reports from its network throughout 2016, complemented by recent research findings, including data from Eurofound’s European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS).
