It is with great honour that I announce the publication of the special issue 13/2 on the Italian Journal of Sociology of Education dedicated to the analysis of the condition of youth in Italy. The special issue is entitled Mastering youth transitions: Italy as a case for the contemporary complexities and is co-edited by myself together with M. Visentin, O. Giancola and A. France.
The project VINE (financed under the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Program) aimed at studying the intersections of gender and economic insecurity. One of the actions that were foreseen in the project was to foster the publication of a special issue gathering studies that focused on gender and economic insecurity in Southern European countries using an intersectional perspective.
Finally, The Intersections of Economic Insecurity, Non-Standard Employment and Gender in Southern Europe is out on the Frontiers website, edited by myself and Christiana Ierodiakonou (University of Cyprus). Continua llegint

When the pandemics started, my first though was: who will be on the losing side when this is over? Unfortunately the answer to this question is very simple: women, youth and ethnic minorities are those who are suffering the worst consequences, in terms of social and economic consequences.
