[11] final programme

globalisation and technological change have transformed where people work, when and how. digitisation of information has altered labour processes out of all recognition whilst telecommunications have enabled jobs to be relocated globally. but icts have also enabled the creation of entirely new types of ‘digital’ or ‘virtual’ labour, both paid and unpaid, shifting the borderline between ‘play’ and ‘work’ and creating new types of unpaid labour connected with the consumption and co-creation of goods and services.  the implications of this are far-reaching, both for policy and for scholarship. the dynamics of these changes cannot be captured adequately within the framework of any single academic discipline. on the contrary, they can only be understood in the light of a combination of insights from fields including political economy, the sociology of work, organisational theory, economic geography, development studies, industrial relations, comparative social policy, communications studies, technology policy and gender studies

cost action [12] is1202brings together an international network of leading experts from 30 european countries with researchers from other parts of the world to develop a multi-faceted approach to understanding these phenomena. this international conference will open up an interactive dialogue between scholars both inside and outside the network and will include both theoretical and empirical work. themes include:

the new international division of labour

changes in skills and occupational identities in the digital economy

value creation in the internet age

policy implications of virtual work
