New publication: Social Impacts of Sharing Platforms

Article_social impacts

IIIEE Researchers Steven Kane Curtis, Oksana Mont, and Jagdeep Singh published a new article in PLOS ONE, in collaboration with Alexandra Kessler from the Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP). The article synthesizes the potential social impacts of sharing platforms and proposes a systematic framework to assess these impacts at an organizational level. The social impacts are explored across four social aspects, including trust, empowerment, inclusivity, and social justice. Several measurable indicators are proposed to support the social impact assessment. Future research will operationalize the framework, in collaboration with sharing platforms, to contribute to ongoing research on the social impacts of the sharing economy.

Researchers from the Urban Sharing project conducted this research, as part of their ongoing work to explore the sustainability impacts of the sharing economy. The research project is led by Professor Oksana Mont, who also coordinates the Institute’s research on sustainable consumption governance, one of four research themes at the Institute.

The article is free and open to all, available here: https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0240373
