The Rodolfo Debenedetti Lectures are public lectures by leading scholars on cutting edge topics of the economic research. The main purpose of these events is to present to a non-technical readership new and evolving research on topics, such as:
the implications of the ageing of populations;
long-term trends in income distribution;
the changing size and composition of welfare states in an integrated Europe;
labour market reforms and the transitions across employment, unemployment and inactivity, as well as the spread of temporary work;
international and regional migration;
the future of trade unions and collective bargaining;
the political economy of social welfare reform.
