Emanuele Ferragina has established (with a group of Italian researchers) the think tank Fonderia Oxford, which has the objective of raising public awareness about important societal issues, such as the rigidity of the Italian labour market, the lack of social cohesion in the Mezzogiorno, and the Italian brain drain.
He also regularly writes for Il FattoQuotidiano about equality, labour market issues, party politics, the welfare state and lower league football. His research has attracted the attention of the Italian media and his work has been discussed in TV, Radio programs, and by the main Italian newspapers.
His books Chi Troppo, Chi Niente (trans. Who gets too much, who gets nothing, 2013) and La Maggioranza Invisibile (trans. The Invisible Majority, 2014) are national best sellers.
