Platforms deploy all their power first, particularly in the economic sphere. To shed light on these implications, INCA aims, first of all, to understand how digital businesses, and digital platforms, create and capture value. They grew up extraordinarily after the 2007/8 crisis and promoted labour digitalization and the dismantling of standard forms of labour. Platforms often disintermediate labour collective contracts or bargaining institutions, thus posing serious challenges to workers’ individual and collective rights, and states and even the European Unions have significant difficulties in controlling these companies’ practices. As a result of this approach, digital platforms have become some of the companies whose wealth increased more dramatically during the last years, while Oxfam reports signals of increasing presence of platform workers among the ranks of the new poor at the global level.
