Abstract

The change in contexts and their complexity, especially in the Mediterranean area, has raised the need to start reflecting on modernizing innovative actions able to provide social responses to the real needs of citizens and, moreover, able to combine resources and quality. This is necessary since the expansion of rights is associated with a decreasing public funding capacity. The future challenge will surely be a retrenchment in public spending, orienting it towards the threefold structure of choice (need, preferences, goods) and overcoming of rational choice model (preferences, goods). In a context characterized by these features, the sociological knowledge becomes paramount for reading social phenomena. The role of sociology is to produce “knowledge” through which society can observe the occurring phenomena recognizing their problems, thus allowing for a continuous, ongoing improvement.
El cambio en los contextos y sus complejidades, especialmente en el área del Mediterráneo, ha planteado la necesidad de comenzar a reflexionar sobre la modernización de acciones innovadoras capaces de proporcionar respuestas sociales a las necesidades reales de los ciudadanos para poder combinar recursos y calidad. Esto es necesario, ya que la expansión de los derechos está asociada con una capacidad de financiamiento público en disminución. El desafío futuro seguramente será una reducción del gasto público, orientado hacia la triple estructura de elección (necesidad, preferencias, bienes) y superando el modelo de elección racional (preferencias, bienes). En un marco general con estas características, el conocimiento sociológico se convierte en algo primordial para leer los fenómenos sociales. El papel de la sociología es producir “conocimiento”, así la sociedad puede observar los fenómenos que ocurren, reconocer sus problemas, permitiendo una mejora permanente y continua.
