The new dynamics of work: a scoping study

Halford, S., Hudson, M., Leonard, P., Parry, J. and Taylor, R. (2016) The new dynamics of work: a scoping study , Southampton, GB University of Southampton 53pp.

Record type: Monograph (Working Paper)


The world of work is changing as processes of globalisation, digitisation, economic crisis, demographic and social change intersect to produce new forms of work, working and working lives. At the same time, enduring inequalities of gender, class, race and ethnicity, age and region continue to shape the patterning of work and employment as well as the experiences and relations of working lives. The ‘new dynamics of work’ must be understood as emergent and complex formations at the intersection of continuity and change.

‘Work’ includes both employment and unemployment, paid and unpaid work, in and outside formal workplaces. In order to better understand and respond to its increasing complexities and dynamics, research and policy must take the broadest possible interpretation of work.
