In an age of disintermediation and fading of great mass movements, the "spectre" of solitude seems to appear on the political, social and media scene. Following Mair, we think, for example, of how "the widening gap between rulers and ruled has facilitated the often strident populist challenge" (Mair: 2013), in a political space characterized by the disengagement of both elites and citizens.

On the one hand, and as proof of this disengagement, no political formations that could effectively deal with current phenomena of existential precarization or the challenges posed by migratory flows have emerged. On the other hand, despite the fact that in recent years the welfare state has been reduced in many European countries, due to the intensification of austerity measures, the formation of protest movements similar to those of 2012 (e.g. Indignados and Occupy) has not been observed. Finally, with respect to subjective level, we consider the detachment from politics - both as discourse and practice - well exemplified by the inability to build collective representations of individual problems.

Special issue [deadline May 15th, 2018]  

Varieties of Professionalism in a Globalising World: New Theoretical Perspectives and Analytical Approaches

            Guest Editors: 

  • Andrea Bellini (Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Firenze) 
  • Lara Maestripieri (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow, Universitat Autonòma de Barcelona)

The special issue here presented aims to deal with the multiple complexities that are now emerging in the sociology of professions: the acknowledgement for emerging professions; the eroded power of peer-based systems of professionalization; the growing inequalities among professionals; the rise of precarious employment among expert labourers; the increasing entanglement of professional jurisdictions, which stems from conflicts between locally-, nationally- and globally-based professional activities; the emerging professionalism in developing countries.

CAMBIO accepted for indexing in ERIH PLUS


It is a pleasure to announce that CAMBIO has been approved for inclusion in ERIH PLUS. The European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS) is the most important and prestigious reference index in the European Union when it comes to international quality and impact accreditation for scientific journals in the areas of Humanities and Social Sciences.

ERIH PLUS was established (only as ‘ERIH’ at first) by the European Science Foundation (ESF) Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) in 2002 and has ever since become the most highly valued reference index within the European Union. ERIH PLUS can be described as especially demanding both by the width and diversity of requirements considered and by the strictness with which EU experts’ panels have to carry out their task when evaluating the compliance with those requirements. The selection process includes several stages of the evaluation procedure, and it has been coordinated by the no less demanding Norwegian Association of Higher Education Institutions in the Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals, Series and Publishers from 2014 onwards.
A new call for the rigorous evaluation of scientific journals was published in July 2014. CAMBIO passed this evaluation and was accordingly included in the EU’s prestigious and influential ERIH PLUS index. This undoubtedly means a great recognition for the persevering, disciplined and rigorous work carried out by this journal
