This chapter summarises several important features of the welfare regime of a country, in order to understand the pressures made towards active and individualised policies. The chapter focuses on two fields of policy reform, which are labour market services and social assistance. It begins with a section on the context of welfare policies in the Italian case, before looking at the transformations that occurred in social assistance and labour market services. Finally, it looks at perspectives and challenges found within the Italian context of social policies.
