The Politics of Mobilising a Sharing Economy

This ethnographic study examines the inherent complexities involved in the mobilisation of a public sharing economy platform by a UK local government council. Our findings indicate structural socio-economic and socio-cultural/ideological constraints impacting upon the endeavour leading us, perhaps inevitably, to the conclusion that problems stem from the politics of sharing.
