Labour law in the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a newly emerging area of enquiry, and many people will be unfamiliar with its key concepts and preoccupations. Others yet will be well-versed in it, but always keen to widen their knowledge. Our Resources section is here to help in either case.

To assist scholars, researchers, practitioners, students, activists, policy-makers and -shapers, and the general public, we are curating a regularly-updated body of research and other materials. These range from leading-edge journal articles and reports by the International Labour Organization (ILO) to media reports, legislation, international treaties, and more. Think of our Resources section as the Teacher's Choice -- our Recommended Reading list for understanding labour law in the digital age.

Research reports

Anne Dufresne and Cédric Leterme (January 2021). App Workers United: The struggle for rights in the gig economy.

This study provides The Left (European Parliamentary group) with the right tools to pursue their work in the European Parliament in defence of platform workers and their rights. The findings show that the battle for the status of platform workers is seminal. As part of their work in the European Parliament Employment and Social Affairs Committee (EMPL), the authors are committed to ensure that platform workers have the same rights and work conditions as other workers.
