Following the crises 2007 on global level “the Unemployment or underemployment is perceived as the global risk of highest concern”. (WEF, 2016) In a global competition coupled with knowledge progress impact explains the change in the nature of work reflected by the structural unemployment manifestation as the main economic risk. The ILO’s “Resolution concerning statistics of work, employment and labour underutilization” redefine the statistical concept of work and its measurement methodologies adopted in 2013.  McCann, D.

These challenges requests complex solutions including upgrading accordingly the new context starting from concepts, methodologies and measurement tools,   spatially tuned in the ”new way of thinking” of changing the nature of work and the diversification of the forms of work and of the relation to work (respectively to have work).
