How digital labour platforms can provide decent jobs for young refugees12 August 2021
Digital labour platforms can transform how young refugees make a living. But the unequal spread of internet connectivity, inequalities in digital skills and the specific obstacles that many refugee population face daily make it difficult to apply for these jobs.
Andreas Hackl, Lecturer in social anthropology at the University of Edinburgh, and author of the ILO report Towards decent work for young refugees and host communities in the platform economy in Africa: Kenya, Uganda, Egypt and Drew Gardiner, Youth employment specialist at the ILO, explain how coordinate action is needed to ensure young refugees can access gig economy jobs and that these jobs are decent.
