(English) Social innovation and the role of public and private actors in welfare system (Italiano) Innovazione sociale e ruolo degli attori pubblici e privati nel welfare


  • Marco Accorinti


(English) Based on local cases, paper explores the prospects of the management of social services in the current socio-economic context. It seems at least inappropriate to use pre-established models of intervention in social assistance, but it is more appropriate to pay attention to measures to be implemented innovations at the local level. With collaboration between public entity and private bodies, the State has not only the task of programming, but it is also committed to managing social interventions and controlling processes. A new protagonist of citizens, according to the Article 118 of the Italian Constitution, is becoming. (Italiano) Attraverso un’analisi di casi locali, il paper approfondisce le prospettive della gestione dei servizi sociali nell’attuale contesto socio-economico, e il concetto base dei servizi alla persona ovvero l’interazione sociale tra attori (pubblici e privati) operanti nei territori. Sembra infatti quanto meno inopportuno pensare di poter ricorrere a modelli precostituiti di intervento, ma è maggiormente adeguato porre attenzione alle azioni da realizzare a livello locale secondo innovazioni frutto della collaborazione tra Ente pubblico e organismi privati, in cui lo Stato non abbia solo il compito della programmazione, bensì della gestione degli interventi sociali e del controllo dei processi con un protagonismo nuovo dei cittadini, secondo lo spirito dell’articolo 118 secondo comma della Costituzione.
