Virtual Issue on NTWE in the era of COVID-19

The impact of the COVID‐19 crisis on working lives is enormous. As the virus spread across the globe in the early months of 2020, we quickly witnessed fundamental changes to our work and social lives. Across the world, millions of workers suddenly found themselves unemployed or furloughed as businesses struggled to meet costs. The full economic impact of the pandemic is yet to be determined, but it will be significant (see Keogh‐Brown et al., 2010). Displays of emotions in the workplace have increased, and tensions have become heightened as society struggles to adjust to widespread illness and death of friends, family and colleagues.

Reshaping work: Disabled people’s inclusion and digitalization in the new world of work

This special issue hopes to encourage more research and critical debates on how digitalization, AI, and machine learning affect job search and hiring processes as well as working life in a broader sense among disabled people. We invite both theoretical contributions and empirical studies building on qualitative, quantitative data or mixed methods to change the direction of debates on the future of work and reshape work with and for disabled people. We especially welcome innovative methods, including those that prioritize disabled people’s voices and that use emancipatory approaches.

See here for more details.

Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2025
