Virtual Event

This event is the second in our new ‘TASC Break’ series, where the TASC Platform hosts short and informal session to share new insights and meet the people behind the papers. 

On 24 March at 17:00 CET, we are thrilled to hand the reins to three of our TASC Future Leaders – Michelle Olguin, Amy Nguyen and Fabiola Maza, Masters students in International Affairs at the Graduate Institute, to present the findings of their Capstone Project “Crowdwork and the Trade Regime: Opportunities and Challenges”, conducted in partnership with the International Labour Organisation.

Data regulation, taxation, jurisdiction and competition are some of the main debates that could shape future platforms, business models, and forms of work. This report is focused on the current debates in the trade regime that impact crowdworking platforms, and how some domestic regulations are responding. Although most academic concerns regarding crowdworking platforms are related to labour standards, the trade regime imposes some challenges to the development of these technologies as a source of employment.

Amy, Fabiola and Michelle will share their highlights from the report, followed by an open Q&A.
