Sharing economy

The sharing – or platform economy has frequently been featured in media in recent years. The platforms position themselves as intermediaries that connect service providers with customers. The services vary from small jobs, such as transport or cleaning, to rent of assets such as homes or cars. Instead of every single individual creating his/her own marketplace from scratch, the platforms offer a marketplace that providers and customers can make use of. Our research focuses on platforms that intermediate work, and the type of jobs and forms of employment that emerges with the platform economy.
