The objective of this series of reports is to study the interplay of innovations with local welfare systems, to identify critical factors and think about appropriate ways of up-scaling innovations.
20 years of centre-right governments in Milan have boosted the privatisation and contracting-out of public and welfare services. Since 2011 a new city government has emphased participation in welfare governance. This report is part of a series describing innovative projects in the areas of housing, employment, family care and immigrant integration in 20 cities across Europe.
This final event poster demonstrates the modes of working and impact of Fondazione Welfare Ambrosiano in Milan which provides micro-credit schemes for people in need.
A total of 20 European cities have been studied in depth within the WILCO framework. This report series represents the first attempt at understanding how the cities have developed over the last decades and how changes have contributed to the current landscape in the areas of housing, employment, family and immigration.
