Chapter 1: Introduction: the big challenges
The Impact on Labour Markets and Welfare States
Restricted access

A number of presentations around and analysis of the possibilities of using new technology – from robots, Google cars to the ability to use Big Data to solve complex problems – have been put forward in recent years. Authors have tried to estimate the impact on labour markets and possible job losses because of the dramatic changes in the ways in which we will be able to produce and consume goods compared to previous times. This chapter will outline the hypothesis of how the changes will influence especially labour markets and welfare states in Europe, and indicate why these may have a profound impact on our understanding of dualisation within labour markets. It will further outline the content of the book.
