On 9 December, Andrea Floridi will defend his thesis 'Firms navigating in the borderland between formality and informality'
In this PhD thesis, Andrea Floridi carries out a systematic analysis of the effects of policies promoting the formalization of the informal economy and on the effects of fomalization on business performance.
He also outlines a new approach that goes beyond the formal/informal dichotomy, with a case study in three West Javanese cities.
