The dynamic change of work is one the greatest challenges of advanced industrial societies. Work is a systematically relevant element of the global economy, part of our everyday life and a reflection of our socioeconomic conditions and developments. This book outlines important trends, opportunities and risks in the working environment of the 21st century. International researchers, economic actors and politicians from twelve different countries are prethinking work, and have produced inspiring articles on the future of work and the future of our socioeconomic reality.
