The paper assesses the flexicurity index for disabled people in Italy using regional data, over the period 2006-2011. In particular, we develop a multidimensional indicator of flexicurity based on the Mazziotta-Pareto Index. The results of the investigation show that regions in northern Italy show a higher degree of flexicurity than in southern Italy ones. The low level of flexicurity in south Italy is a consequence of the high concentration of civilian disability pensions among those in working age in this macro-area (passive measure). In addition, the strong link between the flexicurity index and matching rate of people with disabilities undoubtedly leans towards a better balance of active and passive policies, giving more prominence to active measures especially due to their ability to improve social and economic integration of people with disabilities.
