Abstract

This report is the first Portuguese report elaborated for the project Crowd-work21. The project is financed by the European Union (DG EMP) and includes alongside with Portugal partners from Spain, Germany and Hungary. The report presents a literature review and results from exploratory interviews carried out to prepare an overview of the Portuguese scientific and public debates about digital labour platforms. It describes 8 activities (initiatives, actions, protests and conflicts) occurred in the country and reports the positioning of unions and other movements. The main outcomes point at the significantly low quantity of scientific production about this topic. The few studies detected are marked by a critical assessment of the effects of technology (and digital platforms) in the working conditions and the losses of workers’ rights.
