Equiwelfare and social innovation.

A cura di: Giovanni Bertin, Stefano Campostrini

Equiwelfare and social innovation.

An European perspective

A redefinition of welfare policies characterizes the current phase in all European countries. To prevent that this crisis could increase the already strong disparities between countries (and within individual countries) it is important to better understand what is happening, and to find a common platform for analysis and comparison. This book tries to start the discussion on these themes involving colleagues who are working to investigate this process of transformation within Europe.

Informazioni sugli e-book

Welfare systems are experiencing a long crisis in all European countries. This is not only due to the reduction of resources delivered by the states, but reflects the social changes and difficulties that have emerged in recent years through the mission carried out by redistributive social policies. A redefinition of welfare policies characterizes the current phase in all countries. To prevent that this crisis could increase the already strong disparities between countries (and within individual countries) it is important to better understand what is happening, and to find a common platform for analysis and comparison. This book tries to start the discussion on these themes involving colleagues who are working to investigate this process of transformation within Europe. The hope is not to build identical or similar systems in different countries, but to increase the capacity for discussion and the opportunity to develop social protection systems capable of dealing with the unique characteristics of individual territorial contexts. Within this perspective, the book is divided into two parts: the debate around the process of welfare system comparison in Europe and internationally; and the examination of the potential and critical aspects in considering social innovation as a path capable of allowing Europe to make a significant step forward in this direction.
