Abstract

In the case of Italy, the effect of international trade on the relative labour demand may be assessed appropriately by examining territorial differences. Given the characteristics of trade flows and labour markets in Italy, the results of the analysis presented here show how the effects of crowding-out induced by trade with less advanced countries on the relative unqualified labour demand mainly operate in Northern Italy. In the period 1990-2002, while upgrading of the training level of the labour force was a phenomenon general to all areas of Italy, the development of the factorial content of trade flows was regionally differentiated, with upgrading emerging only in Northern Italy.
