More specifically, it analyses how online platforms affect the organisation of markets and work and addresses the related opportunities and challenges for individuals participating in such markets. It looks at the trends and effects of non-standard work in OECD countries and identifies policy issues related to new forms of work. It highlights that online platforms may challenge existing institutions and as such might require reviews of policy and regulatory frameworks in many areas.
