Remote work and related mobility are on the rise – and the role of the state is changing

As a phenomenon, digital nomadism is defined as mobility as a way of life that involves telecommuting. In this context, digital nomads are defined as individuals who have adopted a mobile lifestyle and who are usually able to work remotely thanks to digitalisation.

How do mobility rights look like in the post-Covid19 world?
