More than half a century ago, the scholar M.O. Tobriner wrote shrewdly: "(...) the labor movement of a country cannot be dissected in abstraction. It is a reflection of a nation's culture and its art and literature; (...) the social anatomy of a culture is revealed by its component parts. "A Lawyer Looks at French and Italian Labor," Labor Law Journal, 1953, vol. 4, No. 9 (September), p. 613. September). By moving just from this consideration, the conference program focuses on the complex issue of work and in particular on implementing policies, Mutation of law and the diversity of production environments in Italy.

Lidia Greco studies how the reorganization of the production on a global scale affects the Italian culture of work. Specifically, she studies the different configurations of the global value chain and how this has affected the Italian employment relations system. Drawing on some cases, she highlights challenges and opportunities for reshaping Italian employment relations.

Lidia Greco is Associate Professor of Sociology of Economic and Labor Processes. Previously, she worked as a researcher at the Employment Research Center (Trinity College, Dublin), where she was involved in a series of European projects, and at the Research Center for Southern Italy (CERPEM) in Bari. She has carried out consultancy and evaluation activities for the European Commission and for the University of Sussex (UK). She deals mainly with territorial (regional / urban) and industrial change, even in an international perspective. Through this lens she has developed several research themes: people, businesses and places; market and labor policies; innovation and technology; institutions and governance.
