European Christian Academy hosted annual international EC-EZA (European Center for Workers’ Questions) seminar “The Future of Work in the Baltic States and Other EU Countries: Automation, Workforce Transition and Quality of Employment” in May 26-28, 2022. Experts from European Academy of Sciences, Latvian Trade Unions Confederation, Bank of Latvia, Ministry of Economics, as well as from Lithuania (Klaipeda University) and Estonia (NGO “Golden League”) took active part in the seminar. Main conclusions after the seminar describe further automation and role of digitalization of work, whereas technical progress diminishes the role of people, which was analyzed as both positive and negative development. The seminar was organized in hybrid format and was attended by 100 participants from Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Germany, Russia and Bylorussia, which testifies widespread importance of the topic and scope of the seminar information.
