四、关于专刊主题

The new technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution are ushering in an era of societal change, radically altering the way we live our lives,including how and where we work. High-speed mobile internet, AI and automation, big data analytics, as well as cloud technology are increasingly disrupting the status quo and reshaping the global workforce. New forms of connectivity and collaboration are already fast becoming established across many sectors,from retail, hospitality, health, education and entertainment, to banking, manufacturing, and logistics. Yet such changes also bring new challenges, all with perceived ‘winners’ and ‘losers’. Job losses hastened by the adoption of new technologies in one sector may be complemented elsewhere by the emergence of new industries that demand different skill sets and working practices.

Concurrently, societal factors are additionally contributing to changes in how people work and companies operate. In many industries, the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated a move to more flexible and agile working practices in a short time period. Numerous longer-term trends also catalyse this change, such as the emergence of middle classes in developing economies, increases in female labour force participation, greater reliance on specialist contractors and remote workers in some sectors, and demand for more sustainable workplace environments.

This collection is dedicated to exploring the drivers behind the changes to the nature of work as well as the resultant implications for business models, economic growth, living standards, inequality, social mobility, and mental health among other factors.

This call is intentionally broad in scope and welcomes contributions of all types, from conceptual to empirical research. Perspectives are invited from a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary vantage points, including sociology, political science, economics, psychology, philosophy and gender studies, and beyond. Research on policymaking and comparative analyses (country, sector) are also welcomed.
