about

This book explores the dimensions and characteristics of social vulnerability in Western Europe. It provides a broad empirical foundation for recent theories on the emergence of new social risks in post-industrial societies, revealing to what extent social risks are compromising the 'normal' functioning of the European population.
COSTANZO RANCI is Professor in Economic Sociology and Director of the Social Policy Research Laboratory at the Polytechnic of Milan, Italy. He has served as adviser for many institutions, including the Italian government, and has published numerous articles and books on social policy, the third sector, social risks and inequalities.
