Platform workers and the informal economy have become inextricable issues, especially in developing nations. The supply chain of goods and services, as well as transport and mobility, rely heavily on platform workers generally found in the informal sector. Thus, it is essential to discuss the role of platform workers in achieving development goals, especially under SDGs 5, 8, 9, 11, and 17.
This workshop aims to gather representatives from the Asia-Pacific to take a look at how the exploitation of informal workers has shifted for the worse in the pandemic era. It seeks to spotlight cases that deal with privatization, corporate capture, and the intensification of restrictions instead of protections on the informal economy.
