Disabilità e welfare nella società multietnica

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Disability and welfare in the multi-ethnic society

Research output: Book/ReportBook


[Autom. eng. transl.] The book intends to propose an analysis of the theme of foreign disabled people in Italy, so far not very frequented by sociological research in our country: in fact, the available data are few, partial and not readily available, just as the qualitative information on this is small. topic. Instead, it is a question of great importance, as these people (and their family networks) represent potentially multi-problematic subjects: their vulnerability, in fact, is tied so much to the diagnosis, care and daily management of disability, as to being foreigners, sometimes lacking parental support, or in conditions of particular economic and / or social hardship, or still not at ease in the complex world of health, social and educational services offered by our welfare system. The volume then intends to propose a first analysis on this theme, connecting the dimension of research and national reflection with the international one and keeping together three specific areas of interest of sociology: disability, migration, welfare. In particular, since in Italy an organic reflection on this theme is still lacking, the volume devotes a large section to the presentation and discussion of a rich review of international studies on the subject, the result of a rigorous bibliographic research carried out according to the scoping study methodology.
