National, global and technological transitions have changed the nature, meaning and availability of work. For many there is an increasing sense that the world of work will never be the same. This session seeks both qualitative and quantitative papers examining issues pertaining to the changing nature of the world of work within the broad range of themes such as the financial crisis and the impacts of austerity policies; new technological advances and the shift towards a network society; the rise of distant work and flexible work arrangements; collaborations enabling innovation across traditional boundaries of sectors and fields; changing demographic trends and the effects of globalization.
