Introducing Bruno Palier

Last Thursday, I was invited by Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli in Milano at the event “Working in the Balance. Lavoro, vulnerabilità sociale e nuovo welfare“, organised in preparation of the next Third Jobless Society Forum. The event foresaw a special lecture from Bruno Palier from SciencesPo CEE, one of my favourite scholars.

During my introduction as former fellow at the Spazio Lavoro project at the Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, I reminded how dualization processes in Italy differs from the rest of Europe mostly because they regards young people, with a structural generational divide that the crisis has just magnified. Investigation about generational segmentation of Italian labour markets are one of my current research streams (see the marginal work project with A. Firinu). I also published an ebook with Roberto Rizza on the same topic.
