This paper offers a critical perspective on the debate surrounding autonomy at work for a specific category of non‐standard workers: independent professionals. The increasing numbers now working this way as well as their spread into all sectors, industries and occupations, mean that their work arrangements can no longer be dismissed as non‐standard or atypical. Defining them by what they are not is quite simply no longer an option. Our paper examines the various components intertwined behind the taken‐for‐granted concept of autonomy. Drawing on debates from the legal through to the sociological and HR literatures, we identify three underlying dimensions to autonomy. When combined, they provide the basis for an analytical matrix that may assist policy makers, practitioners and individual workers to understand the challenges and opportunities linked to new ways of working.

his paper explores the conditions under which urban entrepreneurship can develop through art-based interventions. Drawing on two contrasting case studies (Civic City in France, Fieris Fééries in Belgium) and taking actor-network theory (ANT) as a starting analytical point, we outline the tensions involved in the implementation process of such interventions. We focus on the capacity of urban entrepreneurs to engage different relevant stakeholders (artists, local government and citizens), establish connections between disconnected worlds that are likely to challenge existing institutional structures and eventually create novelty. We identify these actors as ‘translators’. The paper shows that when urban entrepreneurs play an active translation role consistently over time, art-based interventions can have a substantial impact on urban regeneration. [less ▲]

Research has highlighted that professionals, usually seen as workers with high autonomy, can be controlled through distributed forms of power and perceive themselves as autonomous as they are in fact highly controlled. Reacting to the high levels of control and overwork in professional organizations, a growing number of “independent professionals” (Ipros) provide various forms of intellectual work in the service sector through self-employment. The term Ipros covers activities such as copywriting, translating, IT, marketing, consulting, creative activities, etc. Ipros are acknowledged as the fastest growing sector in the Western economies workforce. Over the last decade, they have been growing by 45% in the EU (Eurofound, 2015). They also experience paradoxical configurations of autonomy and control due to the supervision sharing and the results-based control that arises from the atypical work arrangements in which they are engaged. The purpose of this paper is to build an analytical framework for studying the multiple dimensions of autonomy experienced by Ipros as well as the risks and opportunities they can face. Through the application of this analytical framework on the European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS) 2015 data, we discovered that the IPros’ experiences of autonomy are multi-faceted and that the concept of autonomy is composed of multiple dimensions that are mainly independent from each other. We will also explore the kind of managerial solutions that can be developed to answer the needs of these workers in a more sustainable way. [less ▲]
