The Rise of the European Self-employed Workforce

by Sergio Bologna


____________________________________________________________________________

Sergio Bologna has long been one of the sharpest analysts and critics of 
the changing structures in the contemporary labour market. In this new 
volume, the Italian thinker focuses on the phenomenon of ‘freelance 
workers’, and particularly of knowledge workers, not just as another 
segment within the global workforce, but as an emerging category 
striving to construct its own identity. Far from limiting his analysis 
to the realm of the economy, Bologna investigates the difference between 
employees and freelancers also in terms of their existential experiences 
and of their social relationships, both in the public and private 
sphere. On this basis, Bologna argues that the development of a shared 
identity among freelancers can function as the first step to 
establishing a network of cooperation and solidarity, all the way to the 
creation of a union of freelance workers. Himself a freelance worker, 
Sergio Bologna offers the reader a powerful and passionate argument for 
political and existential change in the 21st century.

AUTHOR BIO:

Sergio Bologna was born in Trieste (Italy) in 1937. He has taught 
History of the Worker’s Movement and Industrial Society at a number of 
universities in Italy (Trento, Padua) and Germany (Bremen). In the 
1980s, he began a logistics and maritime affairs consultancy for big 
business and public administrations and has been a member of expert 
groups for transport and logistics planning at the Ministry of 
Infrastructure.

REVIEWS:

“Today’s freelancers might think they are absolute beginners, but  
Bologna’s masterful history of self-employment sets the record straight. 
A landmark book in every respect.”


Andrew Ross, Author of Nice Work If You Can Get It: Life and Labor in 
Precarious Times



“These essays raise profoundly important and fundamental questions 
about  the reality and the context of self-employment. It is so 
refreshing to read such well informed questioning, when the norm has 
been so often to see autonomous workers as simply a residual category in 
the labour market and rarely worthy of serious examination.”


Patricia Leighton, Professor of European Law at IPAG Business School, 
France

“Through an in-depth sociological and historical analysis of the 
freelance movement, Sergio Bologna draws a portrait that allows us to 
better under stand the characteristics and importance of freelance 
workers, and he offers new perspectives on how collective strategies 
must be implemented.”


Sandrino Graceffa, CEO of SMart cooperative
