Who Benefits from the Sharing Economy? Disruption in Australian Cities (2020–2024)

Technological disruption has created new possibilities for employment and social interaction in cities, yet comes with many associated challenges for policymakers. This project aims to formulate a critical understanding of the sharing economy as a disruptive social, economic, and political process in Australian cities. The project team will apply advanced spatial analytics and theoretical approaches to three distinct facets of the sharing economy, providing new empirical evidence to explain transformative change in cities. nIt applies a geographical lens to create to new knowledge regarding who benefits from the sharing economy, and how progressive regulation can enhance the outcomes of disruptive technologies.
