Mr Nii-Aponsah's research investigates the (dis)similar ways that the adoption of new automation-based technologies will affect labour markets in advanced and developing countries by 2030, as well as the role of the offshoring decision in these developments. It incorporates labour adaptive capacity and analyzes both the economic and technological feasibility of automation to unveil the overall potential quantity impact on advanced and developing economies, as well as possible effects on the Skill, Gender, and Age compositions of their labour markets.
