La valutazione della strategia europea per l'occupazione: il caso dell'ltalia



    (Dipartimento di Economica - Università Cattolica di Milano)


When the EES (European Employment Strategyj was institued in 1997, it represented an idea1 opportunity to modernise Italy's Labour Market. Since then there bas been substantial growdi in employment, inflationary pressures bave been kept under contro1 and some forms of labour flexibility have been introduced. However some of the traditional stmctural problems of Italy's lahour market have not yet been solved. Of these problems, the most serious are the failure to ensure an efficient transition from school to work for the younger generations, the poor leve1 of labour market participation among women, the early retirement of older workers, the widespread presence of undeclared work, and the magnitude of existing geographical imbaIances and intemal segmentation, sources of iniquity as well as ineffrciency.
