Economia & Lavoro


Economia & lavoro



Economia & Lavoro is Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini's four-monthly journal of economic policy, sociology and industrial relations, published by Carocci editore. It was founded in 1967 by Giacomo Brodolini with the aim of promoting debate among political, social, cultural and economic stakeholders that share the goal of democratic progress and reform.

In 1971, Economia & Lavoro became the journal of Fondazione Brodolini, and since then it has been carrying on its founder’s action and thought, paying, on the other hand, deeper attention to social changes and new labour issues.
