Abstract

The most recent anti-poverty policies are oriented towards activating beneficiaries and making them capable to deal with their life by individualising their path out of poverty. What do social workers think about these measures? How widespread do they think poverty is in their working contexts? How do they make the social work tools interact with income support measures? After an introduction on the theoretical and empirical dimensions of poverty, The paper tackles these questions using the results of a survey involving 6500 social workers in Italy. It develops an interpretation of the data about anti-poverty measures, activation, conditionality and the social work tools, also taking into account the territorial distribution of the interviewees
