The Fairwork Foundation: Strategies for Improving Platform Work
About this video
In this webinar, Funda Ustek-Spilda and Srujana Katta talk about the Fairwork Project, an action-research project at the Oxford Internet Institute. At Fairwork, we research working conditions in the platform economy, in order to develop ‘fairness ratings’ for digital labour platforms like Uber and Deliveroo. We use these ratings as a lever to improve pay and conditions for platform workers. We also conduct research more broadly on platform work; we will also introduce our ongoing Covid-19 research, for which we have reviewed how more than 200 platforms in 40+ countries are protecting their workers and consumers during the pandemic. Join the webinar to find out more about the Fairwork project’s aims, methods and research.
