The effects of labour market flexibilization in Italy. A workshop in Pisa

As part of the project activities, ISIGrowth organised a workshop on the effects of labour market flexibilization in Italy, a year after the Jobs Act. The workshop – which took place in Pisa, Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, on the 20th of April 2016 – has been an opportunity to promote a scientifically-based discussion on recent labor market reforms focusing on the Italian case.

The workshop has been opened by Andrea Roventini (SSSUP Unit) introducing two speeches on the ‘state of the art’ of labor market reforms in Europe and in Italy held by Clemente Pignatti (International labor Organization) and Paolo Sestito (Bank of Italy).

During the morning session, three empirical papers on the impact of labor market flexibilization have been discussed.

In the afternoon a round table with the highest businesses and workers representatives – Maurizio Landini (General Secretary of FIOM-MetalWorkers Confederation) and Stefano Franchi (General Director of the FEDERMECCANICA-Metal Businesses Association) –  hosted a discussion on labor market reforms, bargaining mechanism and welfare state arrangements.

The round table hosted the contributions of labor-law experts and was chaired by Giovanni Dosi, director of the Institute of Economics.
