Event Details

Governing Smart Platforms: Policy Directions in the Collaborative Economy

Deadline for registering: 30th November 2016

Our institutions are undergoing fundamental change driven by the emergence of platform technologies.  These technologies lever mass participation in interlocking institutions to co-produce complex constellations of value.  Many of the effects of platform technologies are seen as being positive.  Uber is effective in many locations. Airbnb offers unprecedented variety of accommodation around the world.  But there are issues: Platforms offer new forms of flexible employment, but does this lead to much more precarious forms of work? Platforms mobilise material resources, but do they distribute the benefits fairly? Platforms become enmeshed deep inside everyday practice, but do platforms exploit the knowledge gained from that to our disadvantage?

This one-day workshop will begin by exploring these issues, then will consider the range of responses to platforms by different stakeholders and finally will consider how this range of responses might articulate to form a coherent riposte to the issues embodied in the rise of the platform society.
