New to the research library is a video featuring Marcus Dejardin from University of Namur and Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium. In this video, Marcus discusses his research presented at the Annual Global Research Workshop on Freelancing and Self-Employment 2016.

Examining the dimensions of personal motivation and career expectations of self-employed workers in Belgium, Dejardin’s research explores whether self-employment is an active career choice or dictated by necessity. He finds that the likelihood to remain in self-employment is higher according to your preferences for autonomy.

In this video Dejardin also presents how his research compares to other perspectives shared at the workshop.
