Through a multidisciplinary perspective it addresses a myriad of issues concerning platform work that have not received their due attention such as occupational safety and health, discrimination, and gaps in cross-border governance. The editors and contributors have done a fantastic job in making clear both the exceptional – and the unexceptional – aspects of platform work and thus provide a useful guide to scholars, social partners and policymakers of how to shape the gig economy so that it can be of benefit to all.’ – Janine Berg, International Labour Organization, Geneva, Switzerland Nov 2022 c 264 pp Hardback 978 1 80088 350 5 c £95.00 / c $140.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Research Agendas 5 ECONOMICS & FINANCE TITLES, OCTOBER - DECEMBER 2022
