Looking for high-quality content on the future of work & the digital transition – across text, video and audio? Then check out the Digital Archive from FES Future of Work.
It covers algorithms at work, automation and its impact on labour markets, and the political economy of digital. The main language is EN, but it also tracks content in DE, and soon FR and ES.
Every two weeks from February 2024, we publish a newsletter titled “Wage against the Machine”. It covers the best new content from the archive, with a special focus on EU policy and a keen eye for workers´ interests.

Digital technologies are changing the future of work thereby creating new challenges and opportunities for millions of workers. One prominent example is the ever-expanding platform economy. But like platform workers, many Europeans work under precarious working conditions.
Therefore, we need a future of work with decent jobs and with equal opportunities for everyone in Europe. A future of work with high standards of social protection. In the digital age, workers and their representatives will need to fight for this anew.
We emphasise the importance of a responsible digitalisation for all workers, regardless of their age, gender or ethnicity for all workers.
With our expertise, our studies and our debates, conferences and summer school on the future of work we aim to bring progressive approaches into the forefront and shape a digital transformation that profits not the few but the many.
