The World Bank is launching a competition for students for input into the next World Development Report 2019: “The Changing Nature of Work”.
The draft Report is available online for public review and is updated every Friday and can be found here. The Report analyzes the impact of technology on workers and firms, the implications for human capital accumulation, and potential social protection reforms to help with the adjustment.
The competition provides an opportunity for students to share real-life stories that illustrate the issues discussed in the Report. In particular, they want to know how different actors, including governments, cities, universities, firms, or individuals, are taking advantage of opportunities created by the changing nature of work. Competition guidelines can be accessed here.
Three cash prizes of $5000 each will be awarded to the students providing the winning examples. Submissions should be sent directly to the WDR Team ([email protected]) by August 31, 2018. Prizes will be awarded on October 1, 2018.
