Description

Emerging public policies and advanced information technologies (IT) have created new opportunities for work and life that thrive in global value chains and markets. Life, in general, and work, in particular, are increasingly organized across borders of various kinds, and are subject to rapid change. Still, life and work have been determined by infrastructure and technologies of the 19th and 20th centuries, for instance, in energy. As a consequence, new strategies and measures are required for both physical and virtual spaces in which work and life occur. Moreover, the two are increasingly interwoven-IT for virtual collaboration has created opportunities for remote work, digitization has led to pervasive ubiquity, and boundaries between work and the life outside work have been diminishing. As a result, mobility innovations, renewable resources, efficiency and sufficiency, and responsible use of IT play an increasingly important role.

Reference to Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is situated in a region that is characterized by cross-border commuting, cross-border life, and intense cross-border economic activity, primarily involving Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. The project studies (1) the actionable spaces that cross-border work and life create for individuals and organizations, (2) the success factors of border-crossing agglomerations, (3) how competition between different jurisdictions shape philanthropic ventures and the creation of "philanthropy hubs," (4) how wealth is managed across borders, (5) how funds are raised across borders, and (6) how entrepreneurial ventures are established and managed across borders. The unit of analysis is Liechtenstein and the project is thus of high regional relevance.
