Il Reddito di Cittadinanza: una riforma mancata?

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Citizenship Income: a failed reform?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] The introduction into our legal system of a universal minimum income measure represents one of the main innovations experienced by the Italian welfare system in recent decades. After having reconstructed the trends in poverty in recent years, the contribution tries to take stock of the historical process that led to the implementation of the measure of the Citizenship Income, then focusing on the analysis of the latter tool to show the numerous elements of weakness, first of all the risk of a torsion in the welfare sense that does not reconcile with the logic of social investment pursued with similar instruments in other European countries. Precisely on the basis of those experiences, some paths for improvement are also advanced, starting with the need for a drastic strengthening of the components of socio-working activation.
