Discussing "The Moral Neoliberal: Welfare and Citizenship in Italy"
Friday, November 30th
2:00 - 4:00 pm
Abstract for the book:
Set within the shifting landscape of neoliberal welfare reform in the
Lombardy region of Italy and visiting sites from Milanese high schools to
he offices of of social workers to the homes of the poor, "The Moral
Neoliberal" examines the phenomenal rise of voluntarism during Italy's
current withdrawal of social service programs. Mounting a powerful and
paradoxical argument that morality in Italy has become an indispensable
tool for capitalist transformation, Muehlebach explores the state's mass
mobilization of selflessness as a means to cement - and to sometimes also
unintentionally undermine - some of its most controversial reforms.
