Internet is the fourth most impactful innovation in human history after the fire, the wheel, the electricity. As we move ahead with technologies and tools built to influence the Internet, scepticism is evolving ground on the potential impact of the Internet on taking away jobs.

The United Nations established the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) as a global multi-stakeholder platform to have policy dialogue on Internet governance issues. The Dynamic Coalition on ‘Internet & Jobs’, under the IGF, realises that there is a lack of sustainable and responsible automation. Thus, this gives the potential of the Internet to build jobs and strengthen the local economies. 

Dynamic Coalition on ‘Internet & Jobs’ is an initiative taken by Professor Rajendra Pratap Gupta at the IGF.

You can find more about the coalition on their official website:
