In the Paris region, more and more workers have working hours that are no longer explicitly fixed by the employer. Instead, they have what we call flexible working hours.

Digital nomads use so-called “lifestyle arbitrage” strategies to exploit the difference between the compensation that they receive and their costs of living. There is strong reason to believe that the community of digital nomads has been severely disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and this project seeks to assess the impacts of the coronavirus on the ability of these individuals to reproduce their lifestyles.
