Institut Convergences, the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Migration and Integration at Toronto Metropolitan University and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development invite scholars to participate in their call for papers for the workshop "Migration and the future of work".
Workshop on March 29th 2023 at the Campus Condorcet, Centre des Colloques, Aubervilliers, France.
DEADLINE: December 15th 2022.
Papers will contribute to these two panels of discussion:
- Digital Nomads and Placeless Work, introduced by Kate Hooper, Migration Policy Institute
- Migrant Workers in the Gig Economy, introduced by Niels Van Doorn, University of Amsterdam
Digital advanced technologies are reshaping our world with a radical impact on the structure of work; the Gig Economy is probably the clearest example in this sense. Selection, recruitment, production and delivery have all gone through a process of modernization and hyper-digitalization that have created new opportunities and re-modulated many job positions.
The workshop will open a debate on intersections between advanced digital technologies and the labour market integration of migrants. As the organizers states:
"We will interrogate the role of advanced digital technologies in different immigration cycle stages, from recruitment to employment to post-migration integration and skills recognition. Both analytical and empirical paper proposals are welcome. We will privilege papers though that speak to more than their specific case study offering comparative insights or raising important policy or theoretical issues."
The workshop will start with a keynote Roundtable with Anna Triandafyllidou (CERC Migration, Toronto Metropolitan University); Jean Christophe Dumont (OECD); Hillel Rapoport (Paris School of Economics).
