Public housing policy and local welfare: new challenges for the social services

Articolo scritto da:

Since responsibility for it was decentralized, the various regions of Italy have approached public housing in various ways. The current crisis is also creating an increase in situations of vulnerability in addition to problems of arrears and eviction. In order to address these critical issues some innovative projects are being tested, aimed at enabling and supporting collaborative processes between the various subjects at local level and at promoting integrated responses. Starting from a few experiences of social mediation in housing in the Marche Region, this paper describes the actions taken by social workers in the contexts of public housing – actions aimed at supporting families, preventing conflict and promoting interventions aimed at encouraging a culture of sustainable coexistence. only subscribers can see the full article

Health Societies in the Pisa Area. Characteristics and Process of Territorial Control

Articolo scritto da:

I’ll try and explain what has been done in the last twelve years in Tuscany and Pisa. After reflecting on the question for several years, we were convinced of the importance of making the local administrations fully responsible for the problems of wellbeing and health. The starting-point was the integration between the social and health sectors. Some general considerations on these subjects, now generally known, which led the Municipalities to start this debate, may help us understand the various phases.only subscribers can see the full article

Third Sector: from Integration to Replacement of the Public System?

Articolo scritto da:

The article shows the decisive impact of three dimensions linked to the role of the third sector in social policies: how politicians see nonprofit organizations, how social services delegate, and how social policies involve and plan at local level. As a result of how these three aspects are developing, the subsidiarization of welfare is almost naturally starting to modify the roles of those involved, towards spaces of new privatization of social intervention, that betray the institutive aims of non-profit organizations.only subscribers can see the full article

Innovation and the Role of Public and Private in the Context of the Crisis of Financing Welfare

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Territorial Welfare
Through an analysis of local cases the essay examines the prospects for managing social services in the present socio-economic context, and the basic concept of person-centred social services, and the social interaction between those public and private figures working in society. It seems sufficient to draw attention to the action to be taken at local level with innovations that are the result of collaboration between public and private, in which the state not only has the task of planning and running social intervention, but also of controlling the processes with a new involvement of citizen groups, in the spirit of article 118 paragraph two of the italian Constitution.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

Economic Crisis and Regional Wage-support Policies

Articolo scritto da:

The crisis of the system of production has had the effect of reinforcing the role of regional administrations in managing passive labour policies. In fact, we need to consider not only the functions of running – and financing – the benefits system, delegated to the regions in the agreement between state and regions of February 2009, but also the array of additional and substitute interventions that have been made by locally autonomous bodies. Yet regional interventions, lagging behind national interventions, have been patchy and inevitably limited to the immediate area, and bring out the potentially disruptive character intrinsic to more recent developments in the area of wageprotection policies, when they are not sufficiently accompanied by a strongly equalizing action at national level. only subscribers can see the full article

Social Negotiations: Rights, Democracy and Union Action

Articolo scritto da:

in the issue
Territorial Welfare
Negotiations by Italian trade unions on welfare have been widespread since at least the 1970s. They have been combined with institutional and administrative reforms (title V of the Constitution; administrative electoral laws), social legislation (law 328/2000 on the integrated system of social services), the development of shared decision-making processes, and tools for regulating industrial relations. Today, social bargaining takes place in negotiated planning of local welfare and in discussion of budget policies of local administrations. In the years of the economic and financial crisis bargaining has been a sensor of the fiscal and employment crisis of local companies. The crisis has also encouraged thinking in the unions too, concerning relations with the general public, with local stakeholders, and with its own constituency and with its organizational model.only subscribers can see the full article

Local Welfare and Reflexive Institutions. Implementation Processes in Friuli-Venezia Giulia

in the issue
Europe and Regions
Following decentralization processes, many Italian Regions have been acting as policy laboratories, developing very different approaches according to their political attitude. On the one hand this gives rise to a scenario of fragmented policies and growing inequalities in the Italian welfare system. On the other hand, opportunities are opening for trying new institutional and organizational structures at regional level. In this article we focus on a pilot programme which aims to promote and implement innovative practices in health and social care services in Friuli Venezia Giulia. On the basis of this case study, we offer an analytical overview of some issues involving the development of «local active welfare» in Italy.only subscribers can see the full article

The Crisis as a Factor for Reorganizing Local Welfare: the Case of the Marches

Articolo scritto da:

This article analyses the changes in the regulations and institutions of the social policies system following the economic crisis through the case study of the region of the Marches, and starts from the theory that less structured institutional contexts are feeling the economic crisis more markedly and their choices tend to break with the general trend of the last ten years. The change of institutional paradigm taking place in the Marches suggests a series of reflections of national significance on the potentiality and limitations of local governance and organization as encouraged by law 328/2000, bringing out some of the main limitations and potentiality in the processes of institutional learning at local level.only subscribers can see the full article
