The experiences during the pandemic have made many believe that the future of work will be remote, leading to a revitalisation of small cities and rural areas. This seminar will explore what the consequences of remote work are for the spatial organisation of work. It will draw conclusions from data of a fully remote labour market and show that remote work is spatially polarised, pulling jobs towards large cities instead of spreading work more evenly across the globe.
This seminar is part of the Department of Social Policy and Intervention Hilary Term Seminar Series on technology and social policy.
Booking required for people outside of the Department of Social Policy and Intervention (DSPI). DSPI Members do not need to register.
