Old and new paths of labour regulation in SMES in Europe: trends and challenges for economic competitiveness and social sustainability Financial

The project aims at studying the mechanisms of labour regulation within small-scale firms located in the diffused-economy areas of Tuscany, with particular attention to the specificity of institutional regulation and social negotiation practices at local level, and to the mutual influence with organizational practices within the firms.
It is structured into three phases: theoretical and methodological design; wide-ranging exploration at local level, focusing on the firms’ basic features and on preliminary aspects of the main paths of labour regulation in Tuscany; case studies.
On the scientific side, in order to enlarge the conceptual framework and, above all, to analyse the importance of the chosen territorial contexts within the international arena, the research will provide a comparison with Spain and in particular with the area of Catalonia, as a region thats presents elements of similarity.
