Dante Sabatino is a senior researcher. He began his scientific career at the Institute for Population Research (IRP-CNR) in 1999 to 2002. He has been working at the IRPPS-CNR from 2002 to date. He received two fellowship grants from the National Research Council in 1995 and 1996. He received his PhD in the Sociology of Modernization and Development from the “Federico II” University in Naples in 2002.
His research interests concern both the relationship between gendered migration patterns and socio-demographic transformations of Western Societies and the role of immigration policies in shaping migration inflows and integration patterns.
He has focused his work on the social and cultural implications of the model of care based on migrant caregivers (the so-called “badanti”) and he is interested in understanding how the model will adapt in the future with respect to both social and family transformations and generational changes.
Recently, he has also investigated the implications of institutional constraints on the failure of Roma and Sinti people integration programmes in the big urban areas.
He has been the coordinator of many research projects: from 2009 to 2012 he was coordinator of the CNR research group for the “New Workers and New Representation Models” PRIN 2009 Research Project of National Interest, financed by the MIUR Ministry of Education, University and Research.
