María Isabel de Andrés
December, 2019

In this video María Isabel de Andrés discusses her recent research presented at the Annual Global Research Workshop on Freelancing and Self-Employment 2018.

Her research aims to identify and characterise new forms of underemployed self-employment that emerge in parallel with the development of the gig sector and digital economy.

She finds that precarious self-employment is closely associated with the emergence of the gig economy, and that there are some types of self-employment that are more likely to be precarious (e.g. dependent and necessity self-employed).
