The Politics of Mobilising a Sharing Economy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This ethnographic study examines the inherent complexities involved in the mobilisation of a public sharing economy platform by a UK local government council. Our findings indicate structural socio-economic and socio-cultural/ideological constraints impacting upon the endeavour leading us, perhaps inevitably, to the conclusion that problems stem from the politics of sharing.
