CfP SdL | Bringing the State (finally) back in again. Il lavoro pubblico tra opportunità, vincoli e prospettive

La Special Issue Bringing the State (finally) back in again. Il lavoro pubblico tra opportunità, vincoli e prospettive, a cura di Vincenzo Fortunato (Università della Calabria), Anna Mori (Università di Milano) e Marcello Pedaci (Università di Teramo) vuole colmare il gap conoscitivo e di ricerca sul lavoro pubblico, promuovendo una discussione ampia con un approccio inter- e multi-disciplinare. La proposta muove anche dalla constatazione della crescente importanza del lavoro pubblico in un momento in cui il ruolo della pubblica amministrazione rappresenta un fattore decisivo per la ripresa e la crescita economica e per il miglioramento dell’accesso ai diritti e della coesione sociale. In tale prospettiva, la special issue si propone di raccogliere contributi originali di riflessione teorica, ma soprattutto di analisi empirica, di taglio qualitativo e/o quantitativo.

La scadenza della call: 15 dicembre 2024.

CfP SdL | In fuga dal lavoro? Concetti, strumenti e pratiche per l’analisi del fenomeno dell’Antiwork

La Special Issue In fuga dal lavoro? Concetti, strumenti e pratiche per l’analisi del fenomeno dell’Antiwork, a cura di Joselle Dagnes (Università di Torino) e Luca Storti (Università di Torino) intende mettere ordine tra fenomeni connessi ma solo parzialmente sovrapponibili, se non talvolta contrastanti tra loro, e che vengono semplicisticamente etichettati come Antiwork, raccogliendo contributi capaci di mappare e delimitare questi fenomeni da un punto di vista empirico, su singoli casi settoriali o nazionali o per comparazione, anche con la finalità di comprenderne la reale estensione, al di là delle narrazioni e rappresentazioni mediatiche che li hanno resi celebri.

La scadenza della call: 15 settembre 2024

CfP BDD | Food poverty and right to food: challenges, policies and practices

Biblioteca della libertà just launched a call for papers for a special issue on “Food poverty and right to food: challenges, policies and practices”, edited by Ilaria Madama, Franca Maino, and Chiara Lodi Rizzini.

The special issue aims to discuss the developments, current state, and likely prospects of food poverty and right-to-food policies, approaching these topics from different perspectives.

– how different welfare models are equipped to deal with the phenomenon of food poverty, severe deprivation, and marginalization;

– the connections between severe deprivation, food poverty, political participation and democracy;

– the conceptualization of severe deprivation and food poverty and their measurement.

The special issue aims to address these topics from an interdisciplinary and multidimensional perspective; therefore, we invite scholars working in different fields of inquiry. Contributions both in ITALIAN and in ENGLISH are welcome.

Deadline for abstract submission is June 30th, 2024. Decisions will be made within two weeks. Upon notification of acceptance, you will be invited to submit the full paper no later than September 15, 2024.

CfP | The informal economy and digital labour platforms: Opportunities, risks, and challenges for workers

Most existing literature on digital labour platforms (DLPs) focuses attention on the effects of DLPs on formal employment, highlighting processes of the informalization of work, which has happened in some formal economic activities, and its relationship with the spread of DLPs. Moreover, critical sociologists and labour law experts have highlighted how and to what extent DLPs exercise control over labour processes through algorithms and offer poor working conditions, thus recalling some of the aspects that usually characterise the informal economy. Studies that analyse the relation between the informal economy and DLPs are still scant and mainly focused on the Global South.
Therefore, research which focuses on the imbrications between the informal economy and DLPs both in the Global South and North can contribute to the advancement of knowledge concerning the transformation of the informal economy and its relations with the formal economy and, specifically, with the economy and employment developed through DLPs.

The special issue aims to shed light on how DLPs affect the informal economy and workers in occupations that have been traditionally characterised by informality, thus placing emphasis on the secondary segment of the labour market. Moreover, it seeks to bring to the fore the perceptions of (in)formal workers in relation to their engagement in DLPs and the meanings they attribute both to this kind of employment and (in)formality in the location-based platform economy. Finally, the special issue will focus on working conditions and rights at work in the informal economy and in similar occupations managed by DLPs; on the other hand, it will explore workers’ accounts of employment conditions and rights at work, as well as their motivations and expectations when using location-based platforms.

In general, the special issue will provide new theoretical insights on (in)formal workers’ involvement in the platform economy and the relation between DLPs and informal work.
