Workshop "Collaborative Economies- From Sharing to Caring"
The technologies of the “sharing economy” are becoming increasingly relevant to both the daily lives of private individuals and researchers. As these tools are embedded in various communities (of interest, place, practice and circumstance) to support new forms of connection, welfare, labour and service, there emerge fundamental questions around the opportunities and perils of creation and use. In response, this workshop brings together perspectives and cases from researchers and practitioners across various disciplines to interrogate how different form of collaborative economy might be imagined and created based on the ethics and logic of care.
