The workshop on Alternative Work Arrangements is taking place on 27 October 2020, organised by the Department of Economics at Oxford University and the LSE Centre for Economic Performance.

Flexible, "non-standard" work arrangements are increasing in both prevalence and policy relevance throughout developed economies. At the workshop, we will share new findings on the characteristics, constraints and preferences of gig-economy workers, the self-employed and others in non-standard work. We will also give international perspectives on the changing composition of jobs and how to evaluate the 'alternative work' economy.

The workshop's keynote lecture will be given by Dmitri Koustas (University of Chicago) and will be followed by a policy panel with participants from the TUC, OECD and BEIS.

The event represents the conclusion of a programme of work funded by the Turing-HSBC-ONS Economic Data Science Award.
