Digital labour platforms: What challenges and opportunities for Argentina?

This AFD #ResearchConversations webinar on March 15th 2022 explores the characteristics and labour conditions experienced in some digital labour platforms in Argentina. 

It will draw upon four research papers made by a partnership between the Research Department at AFD and the Área de Economía of the Instituto de Ciencias at Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento (UNGS) about platform workers in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area. It will discuss the extent to which location-based platforms’ characteristics influence the incorporation, job retention and the performance of women and men into jobs like delivery workers, hail-riding drivers, domestic workers and home repair providers. Discussions will be enriched by Uma Rani (ILO Research Department) who will open the webinar sharing some evidence from the WESO 2021 report.

The webinar will take place in English (with possibility of joining the Q&A session in Spanish) and registration is required to join.
