As part of her Marie Jahoda Visiting Fellowship (2023), Professor Ivana Pais is investigating ‘Home care digital platforms and industrial relations in UK’.
The project will use the Origami project (Home Care Digital Platforms and Industrial Relations) research design in the UK and compare results with other countries, aiming to:
- Analyse the role of digital platforms in the home care sector
- Identify the specificities of their organisational model with respect to both traditional organisations in the sector and platforms in other sectors
- Understand consequences for working conditions, social protections, representation of interests, and the strategies of social actors to respond to these needs
