PhD Defence Posthumus alumnus Damion Bunders

On 15 March 2024, Posthumus alumnus Damion Bunders will defend his thesis ‘Gigs of their Own: can platform cooperatives become resilient?’ at the Erasmus Research Institute of Management of Erasmus University Rotterdam.

Damion’s dissertation is about platform cooperatives as an alternative form of organisation where gig workers own and manage a digital platform collectively. It includes an analysis of the challenges these cooperatives face to better understand the conditions under which they could become resilient organisations.

Promotors are Professor Tine De Moor (Erasmus University Rotterdam), Professor Agnes Akkerman (University of Amsterdam), and Professor Pearl Dykstra (Erasmus University Rotterdam).

We wish Damion a succesful defence!
