In the future of work project funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers, more than 30 researchers from the five Nordic countries study:

  • What are the main drivers and consequences of the changing future of work in the Nordic countries?
  • In what ways will digitalisation, new forms of employment, and platform work influence the Nordic models?
  • What kind of renewal in the regulation of labour rights, health and safety, and collective bargaining is warranted to make the Nordic model fit for the future?

Through action and policy oriented studies and dialogue with stakeholders, the objective is to enhance research-based knowledge dissemination, experience exchange and mutual learning across the Nordic boundaries. The project runs from 2017 to 2020, and is organised by Fafo.

The project is divided into seven pillars, and this paper gives an introduction to the research in Pillar VI Labour law & regulations.
