Unions and Change Process. Interviews with Trade Unions Leaders

Articolo scritto da:

The following pages contain a series of structured interviews carried out in September and October 2008 and give an important picture of the current situation of the Italian unions. The interviewees are Susanna Camusso, Confederal Secretary Cgil, Dept of Productive Sector Sector Policies; Carla Cantone, General Secretary of Spi-Cgil; Franco Martini, General Secretary of Filcams-Cgil; Morena Piccinini, Confederal Secretary Cgil, Dept of Welfare and New Rights; Giorgio Santini, Confederal Secretary Cisl, Dept of Labour, Training and Development in Southern Italy; and Claudio Treves, co-ordinator of the Dept of Labour Policies in the Cgil. The interviews are organised in two parts: the first, common to all the interviews, consists of two general questions on the subject of representation and the efforts and real capacity of the unions to see and interpret the post-Fordist socio-economic changes in the perspective of building up a welfare system; the second has three different questions for each interviewee on more specific matters and union dynamics connected with bargaining and the new role of local bargaining, the identity of the unions and their specific role in European policies. only subscribers can see the full article

Non-Eu Clients of Job Services: an Exploratory Study

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Migration
According to the latest «Monitoring of Job Services» carried out by Isfol there are over 260,000 non-Eu workers registered at the Employment Centres (Cpi) at a rate of 6.5% at the national level but with peaks of up to 30% in some provinces. The stability and size of immigrant communities in Italy have thus led to their progressive use of public services. However these clients often make requests which are not strictly related to the labour market so that specific skills and professional figures are now required.only subscribers can see the full article

Governing Welfare at Local Level: a Note on Policy, Bureaucracy and Coalitions of Interests

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Europe and Regions
The article is written from a particular point of view, that of a regional administrator who has also had many years of research experience in Italian universities, studying welfare systems, and offers a reasoned account of some key critical aspects of the creation of social policies at regional level. It thus offers an inside analysis of the regional administrative machine, using the techniques and tools of university research. It illustrates some of the main points involved with making social policy at regional level, connected with intervention models and philosophies, the characteristics of the administrators, and the relation between bureaucracy and policy and between the various levels of government.only subscribers can see the full article

Labour Law in the «Bossi-Fini» from the Perspective of Eu Policies

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Migration
The paper analyses the main aspects of Law No. 189/2002 - known as the «Bossi-Fini Law» 0150 with reference to innovations in immigration due to labour migration. A comparative analysis of the main European countries is conducted and special attention is given to the Eu policies that are developing, based on new attributions to the Eu from the Amsterdam Treaty. The interpretation key adopted highlights a methodological defect of the recent italian reform of immigration for labour migration. In particular, the italian reform exceeds in its political significance and is poor in legislative substance. As a result its interpretation and application are prone to distortion, furthermore, emphasis is placed on the less innovative and/or more regressive positions of the community policy under definition.only subscribers can see the full article

The evolution of models for leaving the family of origin in five Italian urban areas

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
The Italian case
The article presents some research results on models for leaving the family of origin in the more general framework of the process of transition to adult life. As the specialised literature has shown, the Italian situation is striking in the European context for the persistence of traditional models of transition to the adult condition and for the lateness with which the young leave the parental home. Using original data on five Italian urban areas, the article tries to establish if there are differences at local level in the consistency and extension of these specific features. only subscribers can see the full article

How did we become populists?

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Populisms in Europe
Just as Italy has seen an imperfect version of consensual democracy, based on coalitions between parties, and a version of neo-corporatism no less imperfect and incomplete, so it has experienced a partial and sketchy version both of new free-market policies, and of post-party based and majority democracy. To describe this imperfection it has become customary to refer to the dilemma of populism/anti-politics, explaining its problems exclusively in terms of politics. This is a misleading simplification, as the reasons run much deeper. So-called populism is an offshoot of the problematic Italian transition from Fordism to post-Fordism, of the changes caused by this transition n the texture of Italian society, as well as of the adventurous transition from a consensual to a majority system. The fragility of the economy and the weakness of politics were handled, and combated are plausible explanations for the radicalization rightwards of part of the electorate and the party programmes, as well as the style adopted by Berlusconi.only subscribers can see the full article

From fathers to sons: income mobility in Italy

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
The extent to which incomes are transmitted across generations is often taken as an indicator of equality of opportunity within a society. This paper provides a measure of intergenerational income mobility for Italy. It turns out that it is a strongly immobile society, indeed the least mobile of all those developed countries studied so far. We also find evidence of a stronger persistence at the top of sons’ income distribution, and this highlights the inadequacy of the institutional setting in guaranteeing opportunities of upwards mobility for individuals from low-income families.only subscribers can see the full article

The Unions' Public-Interest Role

Articolo scritto da:

The unions originated and developed as organisations in defence of professional interests, but in some countries this basic aim has been supplemented by another pursuing general interests. In some countries the unions’ activities on behalf of the whole community are officially recognised, while in others the unions themselves began to perform them spontaneously. Widespread throughout Europe, the phenomenon has always been particularly marked in Italy. The essay examines the public-spiritedness of the Italian unions, its origins and development, the main areas in which it is expressed, and the advantages and disadvantages of this way of pursuing public interests. The conclusion aims to bring out the benefits that would derive from a fuller implementation of the principles of the constitution.only subscribers can see the full article

Notes on the Concept of «Essential» in the Definition of the Lea

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Nhs
The variations between the notion of essential levels of health care (lea) and the meaning of minimal levels characterised the 90s in Italy and was resolved, in health legislation, with the choice of the Lea and their determination by decree. At the constitutional level, the notion of essential levels of services was confirmed by the constitutional revision in 2001. The paper runs through the steps of this process, the underlying meanings, showing how the notion of essential levels is closely linked to the existence of a national health service, binding together the different regional health services, characterised by their centripetal structure, with the exception of the Region of Lombardia.only subscribers can see the full article
