Our contribution addresses the link between struggles for “redistribution” on the one hand and struggles for “recognition” on the other hand through a case study of the movimento dei disoccupati organizzati in Naples, a grassroots organization of unemployed born in the Seventies in the historical centre of Naples. Their request has been basically the creation of jobs in public services or in urban renewal. It has been characterized by relatively high dynamics in its social composition. The actors of this movement are mostly urban unemployed, precarious workers and women employed in unskilled and unprotected jobs. Our research on the movimento is based on a overview of documentary sources and on meetings and interviews with the local actors involved. The aim is to explore whether and how the need of representation of this part of the workers is met and which relations are established with other actors (unions, political parties, institutions). Another question we address is how protest activity of this group of marginal and vulnerable workers has fostered the emergence of a "counter-narrative" capable of opposing the categories and labels attached to them.

Abstract

Our contribution addresses the link between struggles for “redistribution” on the one hand and struggles for “recognition” on the other hand through a case study of the movimento dei disoccupati organizzati in Naples, a grassroots organization of unemployed born in the Seventies in the historical centre of Naples. Their request has been basically the creation of jobs in public services or in urban renewal. It has been characterized by relatively high dynamics in its social composition. The actors of this movement are mostly urban unemployed, precarious workers and women employed in unskilled and unprotected jobs. Our research on the movimento is based on a overview of documentary sources and on meetings and interviews with the local actors involved. The aim is to explore whether and how the need of representation of this part of the workers is met and which relations are established with other actors (unions, political parties, institutions). Another question we address is how protest activity of this group of marginal and vulnerable workers has fostered the emergence of a "counter-narrative" capable of opposing the categories and labels attached to them.
