„Principles of social long-term contracts – the case of contracts about digital work and digital content“
22-23 March 2019, Frankfurt (Oder), Germany and Słubice, Poland

Five years after the International Social Contract Law Group (EuSoCo) published its „Principles of social long-term contracts“, this conference revisits the principles in view of recent developments in the contracting of work and labour. In order to gain a fresh perspective on how a social contract law could look like, this conference approaches basic contractual forms, principles, common approaches and achievements in existing social contract laws from their borders and fringes, i.e. in contracts about work.The term „contracts about work“ refers to the fact that work, in the digital age, is being contracted not only in employment and other long-term contracts, but more and more with the help of digital platforms modelled on sales and spot contracts. There has been an ongoing debate as to the boundaries between employment and self-employment, between organisation and market coordination. This conference searches for general principles for contracts about work, and puts the principles of social long-term contracts to the test of contracts about work.
