ITALIAN PENSIONS AT THE EQUITY CRITICAL JUNCTURE
Traditionally held up for its financial unsustainability, cross-profession iniquities and its often perverse redistributive effects, the Italian pension system, after two decades of reform, is now generally appreciated – in both the domestic public speech and European/international forums – as a financially sustainable and actuarially fair model.
However, it still faces several challenges for policymakers with respect to the adequacy of benefits and substantive fairness. The conference, organized by the Laboratorio Welfare (WeL) of LPF, aims to promote a reflection on the Italian pension system twenty years after the great reforms of the ’90s – that redesigned the pension system architecture by redefining its operating logic system – and after the critical juncture represented by the reforms adopted during the “Euro crisis”.
