Marginal work in the REPS

Conference proceedings from the last edition 2018 of REPS (Red Espanola de Politicas Sociales) are now available online, including a contribution on marginal work in Southern Europe with A. Firinu. The chapter is entitled From dualization to continuum. Exploring dimensions of Outsiderness in Southern Europe

In this chapter, we explore involuntary non-standard work across a selection of six countries geographically located in the South of Europe (Italy, Spain, Greece, Austria, France and Croatia) but not all belonging to the so-called Southern European model. Our analysis shows the growth of involuntariness and of work at risk of abuse along in the crisis, especially in France, Spain and Italy.

New Publication on Marginal Work

I am so happy to announce that a short chapter about marginal work in Italy written with Antonio Firinu has been published in a recent book from Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli that explores the relationship between work and social vulnerability. The book is entitled “Porte Girevoli. Contributi di ricerca e buone pratiche sul lavoro marginale e le nuove vulnerabilità sociali” and it is freely accessible on the FGGF website.

The chapter (in Italian) gives a theoretical introduction to the concept of marginal work, then showing the growth of marginal work in correspondence with the crisis and concentrated among young adult (25-36).
