Article
Industry 4.0 (I4.0) is a technological framework and policy programme that emerged in Germany in the 2010s, promising to revitalise manufacturing and revalue work by means of intelligent productive systems. The paradigm's cross‐national diffusion raises questions about its context‐dependent adaptation. This article focuses on the Italian I4.0 progr...
Article
In the aftermath of neoliberal reforms and the emergence of the activation paradigm, welfare states’ recalibration based on the social investment and social innovation strategies, influences not only the definition and management of social risks, but also those who are expected to implement and administer reforms. This article explores the percepti...
Article
Dopo vent'anni di lenta e parziale ricalibratura dei sistemi europei di welfare attorno alla strategia dell'investimento sociale (Esping-Andersen et al. 2002; Morel et al. 2011), l'innovazione sociale è emersa in corrispon-denza della crisi economico-finanziaria della seconda metà degli anni 2000 e si è andata consolidando come discorso dominante n...

Chapter
Tra il 2017 e 2019 i due Autori hanno condotto una ricerca valutativa sui Piani Giovani della Regione del Veneto e sulle politiche giovanili locali. La ricerca è stata l’occasione per approfondire le modalità di funzionamento di coalizioni locali di welfare organizzate in modo reticolare e per coinvolgerle nella progettazione partecipata di un sist...
Article
Cash‐for‐care (CfC) schemes are monetary transfers to people in need of care who can use them to organize their own care arrangements. Mostly introduced in the 1990s, these schemes combine different policy objectives, as they can aim at (implicitly or explicitly) supporting informal caregivers as well as increasing user choice in long‐term care or...
Article
Cash‐for‐care (CfC) schemes have introduced a key transformation in long‐term care policies across Europe since the 1990s. The article explores the extent to which CfC policies have changed over time and into which directions, the ways in which change (if any) has occurred and the forces underlying it. By combining the literature on institutional c...
Article
The introduction of cash‐for‐care (CfC) schemes in different European countries over the last years has responded to a plurality of strategies aimed at attending the rising demand and increasing costs of the long‐term care needs of an ageing population. The specific system of care provision in each country shaped the response given to those challen...
Article
The past decades have witnessed growing interest in the concept of recognition, in social movements as well as in social theory. While the ‘recognition turn’ has made recognition a cornerstone in social and political philosophy, empirical interest – in sociology, anthropology and business studies – remains limited and has mainly focused on misrecog...
Article
Although cross‐country differences in the development of early childhood education and care (ECEC) services have been widely researched, the pronounced subnational variation that characterizes many countries is little researched. This article aims to contribute filling this gap by investigating the factors underlying ECEC development in Italian reg...

Article
Decentralization of home care is often presented as a means of increasing efficiency and quality. Little is known about the redistributive effects of the decentralization within local contexts, and about inequalities within municipalities after decentralization. Based on social and cultural capital theories, we hypothesize an increase in socio-econ...
Article
Is more local home care more (un)equal? Socioeconomic inequalities in the access to home care in Dutch municipalities before and after the implementation of the Social Support Act (WMO) in 2007 The partial decentralisation of long-term care in the Netherlands is accompanied by cutbacks, reduction of individual social rights, and increasing dependen...
Chapter
This chapter analyses the development of cash-for-care programs across OECD countries, their effects and their future perspectives. A major commonality of these programs is that they emphasize choice for users, a concept that can be variously declined. With regard to the choice idea behind cash-for-care programs, the chapter distinguishes among thr...
Article
In recent years, a live-in migrant care (LIMC) market has emerged in European countries with specific care, migration, and employment regime features. In countries with relatively low levels of formal long-term care (LTC) provision, people in need of care and their families have started purchasing LTC directly from individual – mostly migrant – wor...
Article
Full-text available
This article investigates the relationship between the ‘gender informal care gap’ - the relative contributions of women to informal care for non-co-resident relatives and other members of social networks, compared to men - and public care policies, level of care needs, labour market position and gendered care attitudes. Since the literature suggest...

In the Netherlands the recent shift to a 'participation society' has led to a reconfiguration of health care arrangements for long-term care. The new long-term care act, scheduled to commence January 2015, forms the political realization of the participation society: people are expected to decrease their dependency on state provisions and instead b...
Article
Full-text available
The gender gap in family care-giving is an established research finding: men dedicate less time to care-giving and provide specific gendered types of help. This article argues that in order to grasp men's contribution to care arrangements one should recognise the multifaceted nature of care and examine care networks beyond the ‘care receiver–primar...
Article
The rise of a large market for elderly care mainly based on migrant female labour represents a substantial transformation in the Italian elderly care system from being family-based to a mix of family- and market-based solutions. Given the internal differentiation of Italy’s policy framework, socioeconomic structure and institutional features, the a...

Full-text available
Parenting support is a new policy field, directed toward teaching parents how to assume their role. Its foundations are embedded in a child-centered social investment approach, which is becoming dominant in Western European welfare states. This article aims at exploring the extent to which ideas underlying these policies are coherent with individua...
Article
Migrant care work has emerged as an increasingly important solution to the challenges of growing eldercare needs in both the private and the public sphere. Migrant workers are employed in domestic services in Southern European and in some continental European countries, and they are a significant part of the work force in the formal care sector in...
Chapter
The foundation of the current Dutch long-term care system dates back to the end of the 1960s, when a compulsory social insurance to cover the costs of exceptional medical expenses (AWBZ) was introduced. Since then, the system has undergone a continuous process of reform. This chapter first reconstructs the original logic of the system through a his...
Article
The development of personal social services and female employment is intertwined, not only in the domain of childcare. With the ageing of the population, the changing forms of care and the developments in the eldercare labour market become crucial issues. The new risk of dependency represents a challenge, but also an opportunity. This paper provide...
Article
Since the 1990s European conservative-corporatist welfare states have expanded public support for child- and eldercare needs. This is in marked contrast to Southern European countries, of which Italy is a paradigmatic example. In Italy, the traditional configuration (limited development of social services coupled with the importance of informal car...
Chapter
With the ageing of the population, the changing forms of care and the developments in the elderly care labour market become crucial issues. In this respect, the “new risk” of dependency represents a challenge but also an opportunity of development. The paper provides an overview of the relationship between the development of long-term-care policies...
Chapter
This important and timely volume brings together a distinguished set of international scholars who provide rich information about the social, economic, political and historical factors responsible for shaping ageing policy in the Mediterranean region.
Article
The Dutch home-care system is embedded in a universalistic and comparatively generous long-term care (LTC) scheme that was introduced in the late 1960s. The tension between guaranteeing access to good-quality care and controlling costs has been a key issue since the inception of the LTC scheme. The article addresses the question of how these two di...
Chapter
In response to the ageing of the population and increasing care needs, long-term care has become a key policy issue in all European countries. The introduction of cash-for-care schemes — allowances provided to elderly dependent people and their families which they can either pass on to informal caregivers or use to employ a paid caregiver — has rep...
Article
The Italian party system has recently been characterized by the formation and splits of pre-electoral coalitions. Different broad pre-electoral coalitions, which were set up in the scope of the 2006 national elections, disintegrated for the 2008 electoral campaign. This explorative study looks at the policy position of the main party coalitions reg...

Given the growth of care needs, the emphasis on informal care and the increasing labour force participation of women and senior workers, balancing employment and elderly care responsibilities is a crucial challenge. This qualitative study explores how and with what implications Italian senior workers combine work with care for older people. The res...
Article
In response to increasing care needs, the reform or development of long-term care (LTC) systems has become a prominent policy issue in all European countries. Cash-for-care schemes-allowances instead of services provided to dependents-represent a key policy aimed at ensuring choice, fostering family care, developing care markets, and containing cos...
Article
Full-text available
Payments for care, by which people in need of long-term care directly employ care workers, have been introduced in many European countries. In The Netherlands, care dependants are allowed to use these payments to hire relatives to perform care tasks. Care-givers who are employed by their relatives are in a hybrid position, because they are contract...

Résumé Chaque système de protection sociale repose sur un équilibre spécifique entre les responsabilités collectives et les responsabilités familiales par rapport aux risques sociaux et aux besoins de care .

Article
Cash benefit provisions have been at the core of many recent reforms in the long-term care sector in Europe. The respective schemes, however, vary widely in terms of the definition of entitlements, the level of benefits, and the ways in which benefits can be used by recipients. This article investigates cash-for-care schemes in three European socia...
Article
Intergenerational solidarity within families is the traditional source of support for dependent elderly people in southern European countries, where care needs have been mainly fulfilled by the unpaid work of women. Recently, the decline of informal care and the persistent lack of supply of formal services have been accompanied by the growth of com...
Article
The familist welfare model - based on an either implicit or explicit attribution of responsibility to family support networks and on a limited development of public support devices - is under strain, similarly to other welfare models, due to tensions linked to demographic developments and growing care demand. The article analyses recent development...
