The conference is organised by the Graduate Institute, in partnership with the International Labour Organisation and the Financial Times and will be held on 11 April 2019 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Panelists from the public and private sector will discuss how to respond to the future of work as new technological opportunities are emerging with the potential to create but also automate jobs. Innovation, particularly in industrialised economies, has allowed for more flexible working arrangements. At the same time, the pace of change has yet to be matched by strength in policy response. Leaders are grappling with ways to address the turbulence caused by automation and artificial intelligence, new working arrangements, demographic shifts, migration flows and climate change. In January 2019, the International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) Global Commission on the Future of Work published its recommendations on how to shape a future with social justice.
Richard Baldwin, Professor of the Graduate Institute, author of The Globotics Upheaval: Globalization, Robotics and the Future of Work, will set the scene for the discussion, which will be moderated by Sarah O’Connor of the Financial Times.
