Ferrari, Filippo (2011): Lo sviluppo delle competenze nei contesti precari.
Download (201Kb) | Preview
The article explores the relationship between flexibility and skills development: the initial hypothesis was that precariousness and flexibility had a negative correlation with the opportunity to develop professional skills. Rather surprisingly, in Italy it seems that being employed on contracts known as 'atypical' or fixed-term does not have a significant impact on participation in training activities, unlike other Western countries.
