Stato e Mercato publishes comparative and inter-disciplinary analyses focused on the relationship between the economy and institutions. The Journal aims to study transformations in contemporary societies, discussing the strengths and weaknesses of different models of socio-economic organization. Stato e Mercato explores both the European integration process and the transformation of the economy internationally and globally. Specific attention is devoted to the institutional changes taking place in Italy, in Western countries and in emerging economies. Amongst the topics covered in recent and forthcoming articles are: the territorial issue in Italian development; inequalities and social cohesion; the financial crisis and its impact on the real economy; the labour market and the education system; industrial relations; public policies and their relationship to politics; the role of civil society, social capital and deliberative democracy in socio-economic and political processes; the changes in the welfare state; public administration reforms. The Journal is not only aimed at social science scholars (sociologists, political scientists and economists), but also at decision makers (politicians, trade unionists, entrepreneurs, public officials and third sector managers) who are interested in the evolution of the economy and society both in Italy and across Europe.
