Reflections for a policy agenda: some suggestions

The need to plot a path that does not leave us in the gutter of the irreversible, has led us to prepare two numbers, under the heading of “Reflections for a political agenda:” to offer a different content. The previous one was more focused on a framework exploratory on the structure and the context, and this that the reader has in his hands offers policy proposals more concrete.

There are reasons for hope, to build a society that is build on other values or principles, with experiences that have already proven their viability, but in the field of policy proposals, requires a willingness to daring to take care of the specific commitment. It is an appropriate time to build a new proposal, to regain the lost confidence and bet for the person and recognition of their dignity. This is the spirit that encourages the contributions of this special issue of corporate Documentation dedicated to proposed concrete in social policy, because social policies are a reflection of the society, of its people-centred development, or his surrender to the economic.
