A special issue of Internet Policy Review, edited by Kris Erickson (CREATe) and Inge Sørensen (CCPR) at the University of Glasgow, explores the regulatory challenges posed by the sharing economy. Each contribution to this special issue provides a lens on economic and social dimensions of sharing economy practice. Articles are focused on policy issues rather than individual case studies of platforms. The regulatory concerns covered by the contributions in this issue include the ontological status of shared goods, the conditions of crowdworking, the regulation of trust between strangers, the definition of relevant markets for competition regulation and European audiovisual media policy.
