The Italian Journal CAMBIO is promoting a special issue entitled “Varieties of Professionalism in a Globalising World: New Theoretical Perspectives and Analytical Approaches“. The issue is co-edited with Andrea Bellini (Università di Firenze) and it is scheduled for the issue 2/2018.

The issue would like to explore new emerging trends in the domain of sociology of professional groups, focusing on the following topics: 1. The growing role of the market as a base for legitimising professionalism; 2. The trends of de-regulation/re-regulation in professional acknowledgment; 3. The increasing inequalities within and between professional groups; 4. The upsurge in precariousness and insecurity for professionals; 5. The effects of globalisation in defining new forms of professionalism.
