Job quality is at the core of contemp orary debates about th e future of work. The
dimensions of ‘good’ or ‘decent ’ work are however fiercely c ontested. Are good jobs
consistent with the absence of employee vo ice mechanisms? In what ways can workers
influence the quality and ex perience of their jobs? Is it meaningful for p olicy makers
to focus on job quality as a core objec tive in the context of contin uing austerity and
budget constraints? What lessons can be dr awn from comparative studies of
employment change and the implications of different regulatory regimes? Will the
wider application of new technologies – r obots, AI and digitisation – enhance or
degrade the quality of work ing lives? The IRJ invites resear ch papers that address
these and related questions c oncerning the changing world of work .
