Elisa Giuliani and Chiara Macchi write about the Ilva case in Taranto and suggest that while European countries have long been considered a stronghold of welfare societies, these countries may in fact face difficulties in ensuring respect and promotion of fundamental rights when economic interests are involved. The Italian case of the Ilva steel plant in Taranto (Italy) is discussed and the authors claim it is not unique, as similar controversies exist in Italy as well as in other European countries.
