PIDS WB 2021-0401: Social Protection, Digital Divide, and Other Issues in Online/Platform Work

This virtual event features two PIDS studies, namely, “Online Work in the Philippines: Some Lessons in the Asian Context” and “Digital Divide and the Platform Economy: Looking for the Connection from the Asian Experience”. The first paper, authored by PIDS Senior Research Fellows Dr. Connie Bayudan-Dacuycuy, Dr. Aniceto Orbeta, Dr. Ramonette Serafica, and PIDS Research Assistant Lora Kryz Baje, analyzed the stylized patterns of online work in the Philippines within the bigger context of the Asian experience. It looked into challenges related to social protection, skills development, and job security, and provided ways to address such issues so that platform work becomes sustainable. The second study, written by PIDS Senior Research Fellow Francis Mark Quimba, assessed the extent of digital divide in Asia through a set of indicators for the region and some selected Asian countries. The result showed that certain segments of the population in some Asian countries have better access (motivational, material, skill, and usage) to computers and the internet. The study also proposed policy interventions to address this digital inequality.
