This event will discuss how poor-quality employment can be defined and measured across a broad range of countries by applying methodologies widely used to measure multidimensional poverty to the labour market. It will further discuss the policy implications and applications of this research, especially in the context of a potential global recession, which may accelerate the impact of technological advances on labour markets. The event will present research from a British Academy Global Professorship on multidimensional quality of employment deprivation hosted by the International Inequalities Institute.
