Africa’s inclusive future of work

Dear reader,

On 16 January, Marleen Dekker from INCLUDE joined the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs seminar 'Globalization, digitalization and the future of work and skills'. After a roundtable with Minister for International Trade and Development Cooperation Sigrid Kaag on the future of work highlighting the opportunities and challenges that the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) poses to employment, Marleen emphasized in the panel discussion the need for realistic thinking on how the 4IR impacts on Africa and to focus on what can be done to ensure that new opportunities do not increase existing inequalities. Learn more about the new two-pager series on the future of work by INCLUDE that provided input for the panel discussion.
