The impact of digitalisation on social rights

The advance of digitalization is transforming the world of work and challenging the universe of fundamental rights built around it. The right to privacy of workers, the right to data protection, the right to freedom of association and the right of collective bargaining, as well as the right to social protection are being challenged by labour narratives and practices of digital economy companies. This makes it necessary to reassert the presence of such rights at the heart of human-based technological development. However, it is also necessary to resignify these rights, so they are strengthened in a new technological context.
