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.
