“Sharing economy” and “collaborative economy” refer to a proliferation of initiatives, business models, digital platforms and forms of work that characterise contemporary life. How do they emerge and develop? How do they affect people and communities?
This book contributes to in-depth ethnographic research to make sense of the collaborative economy. It stems from a unique effort to capture the complexities of the collaborative economy in Europe, and reflects on the opportunities and challenges of approaching such multifaceted phenomenon through an ethnographic lens.Book Details
