From GAFAM to RUM: Platforms and Resourcefulness in the Global South

The GAFAM are often considered as undisputed actors of the world digital economy. Yet, through three situated ethnographic studies, we focus on the rum (Rappi, Uber and Microworkers) to analyse the online usages of Mexican deliverers, drivers in Argentina and click workers in Venezuela. While, in high-income countries, digital workers benefit from the stability and social protection of formal employment, in the Latin American context, it is on the contrary by exploiting the informal system and in reactivating “colonialist” relations that they manage to extract value. The establishment of methods of resourcefulness and active solidarity show that the informal sphere is a conflictual space in which experiences of emancipation emerge that could also inspire social struggles in the North.
