Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to interpret the unemployment situation in Calabria as the result of a mix of traditional and modern factors. We will argue that, in this part of Italy, a strong network based on the family is used as a strategy to reduce the consequences of high unemployment rates, but that the efficiency of this strategy is basically poor and systematically excludes weaker subjects, such as migrants, who cannot rely on this safety net.
