COntesting GOvernance by NUmbers: The Mobilizations of Food Delivery Couriers across Europe in Time of the Pandemic

Project description

Pandemic exposes plight of food delivery drivers

The coronavirus pandemic boosted food delivery companies across Europe. It also shed new light on the plight of gig workers during lockdowns. The EU-funded COGONU project will explore the mobilisation of food delivery couriers. Specifically, it will investigate the causes, trajectories and outcomes of mobilisations of these workers since 2016 in different European cities before and during the COVID-19 crisis. The project will analyse three cases of mobilisation that have exhibited variation in terms of action repertoire, forms of organising, alliance building and target, to understand the dynamics of contention, their political strategies and policy outcomes. The findings will be shared with researchers and partner organisations, and policymakers.
