The conference « Markets and power in the digital age », organized by the Economic Sociology Research Committee of the Swiss Sociological Association and the Institute of Sociology (University of Neuchâtel), will be held at the University of Neuchâtel on September 16 and 17.

The rise and spread of digital technologies over the past few decades has led to reconfigurations of the global economy and brought about new forms of power and power relations in both local and transnational markets. This conference investigates the working of power in digital markets, and the forms of resistance and struggles that the new platform economy provokes. It adresses issues of regulation, algorithmic governance and digital market devices and infrastructures, social stratification in digital markets and the struggles around data and surveillance.
