The Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics is delighted to host a conference on ’The Future of Work: Philosophical and Economic Perspectives’, to be held in Rotterdam from June 22-24, 2022. Everyone who is interested is welcome to attend in person or online.

Work has always played a major role in human lives throughout history, and the nature of work is ever-changing. Increases in productivity, changes in the labor market, and the Covid pandemic have all contributed to transforming the ways in which most adult humans spend a significant share of their time. This conference gathers an interdisciplinary set of scholars interested in understanding, anticipating, and influencing the future of work. It will feature talks on, among other topics, fairness and reproductive work, Immanuel Kant’s political philosophy of work, and whether machines should provide meaningful work to all.
