The future of work

Why?

During the years 2018 and 2019, on the occasion of the ILO's centenary and in the context of the initiative "the future of work we want" FIDE, created a Working Group with the aim of reflecting and discussing the future of work in Spain, with a prospective perspective, to anticipate trends and define strategies that contribute to creating more and better jobs.

Analysis areas

  • Impact of technological change: how automation, artificial intelligence, big data, new materials and processes, in a context of digitization with globalization, will influence work.
  • Impact of change processes: how climate-environmental trends they will influence work, in a context of inequality.
  • Impact of change processes: how demographic trends they will influence work in a context of inequality.
  • Opportunities and risks of changes in perspective for decent work: with rights, without discrimination, healthy, well paid and with social protection.
  • The decline in the typical employment relationship (permanent and full-time) and las new atypical forms of work including the problem of the tendency to commodify labor relations and false self-employed workers: opportunity or risk?
  • Social protection systems and the welfare state and their fiscal support… In an automated and changing society.
  • Universal basic income: Utopia or reality? Transferable benefits (Austrian backpack).
  • Impact on labor relations derived from the gig economy, crowdworking, uberization and other forms of organization of production and work associated with new technologies and digital platforms.
  • Labor challenges of global processes of fragmentation of work and global supply chains.
  • Labor law and regulation of labor relations in the processes of change
  • National and international transformations in labor administrations, in employers 'and workers' organizations and in collective bargaining and social dialogue in a context of transition. New workers, new citizens.

The Foundation for Research on Law and Business (FIDE) created a multidisciplinary Group of Experts for reflection and debate on the ILO initiative on the future of work. This book summarizes the conclusions of said Group of Experts and analyzes the profound, inevitable, global changes of unusual speed that affect employment and work in Spain. These changes derive from new technologies, from the aging of the population and demographics, migratory flows, the effects of climate change, globalization or the new forms of organization of production from the irruption of digital platforms and the use intensive global supply chains. 

In this book have participated jurists, economists, sociologists, trade unionists, representatives of the Administration and company managers, of recognized prestige and relevance, coming from public universities and the most prestigious public and private institutions in the country. It is a work of great strategic importance for the future of work that we want in Spain, given the irreplaceable personal and social function of decent work as a source of labor rights and social protection, that is, of social citizenship rights.

EU Social Law. Application by the Court of Justice (2st Edition)

In collaboration with Forelab and Asnala
Directors:
  • Maria Emilia Casas Baamonde
  • Roman Gil Alburquerque

Coordinators:

  • Ignacio Garcia-Perrote Escartin
  • Adriano Gomez Garcia-Bernal
  • Antonio V. Sempere Navarro

This work aims to contribute to responding to the progressive importance of the social judicial doctrine of the Court of Justice of the European Union. His sentences have notably accelerated the pace, the quantity and also the relevance of new interpretations, which require their study and application by all those involved. For this reason, judges and lawyers in the social jurisdiction have become accustomed not only, as is required, to integrate the Court of Justice of the EU into their practice among the most important interpreters of the law of their specialty, considering and applying their doctrine with novel habituality, but also to think more in terms of the Social Law of the European Union in their daily work.

It is an example, unique for a truly unequaled team of authors, jurists of extraordinary prestige and relevance, as well as for its content, which follows an expository methodology of the Social Law regulations of the European Union on a broad subject, with emphasis in its interpretation by, primarily, its Court of Justice, and also, where appropriate, other European courts and high Spanish courts.

The work contains 48 chapters arranged and designed for the utility of the applicants of Social Law of the European Union, in which all matters of interest to these effects are addressed: European social constitutionalism; the effectiveness of the directives; the relationship between European and state courts; the application of the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice by the national courts; the concept of worker; equality and non-discrimination; freedom of movement of workers ;; public employment; Private International Law and applicable law; judicial competence ...

The book includes a careful and exhaustive chronologically ordered jurisprudential annex of extraordinary utility, by collecting (with summaries of its content prepared "ad hoc") all the jurisprudence cited in the work, which is the most relevant social jurisprudence of the Court of Justice.
