Zhen Im

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of International Economics, Governments and Business, Copenhagen Business School. I am interested in how labour market changes influence public opinion and voting behaviour through the interface of welfare policies. I did my PhD at the University of Helsinki which focused on how the threat of workplace automation influences public support for welfare policies and voting behaviour in Western Europe. I am currently part of the Work Package “Fair Working Conditions” led by Caroline de la Porte which is part of “EUSOCIALcit”, an EU Horizon programme led by the University of Amsterdam (2019-2024). In this work package, I explore how negative consequences of societal transformations such as the gig and platform economy may be regulated.
