Minimum income schemes (Mis) increasingly share a common trait: reliance on work related conditionality. Work-related conditionality, then, can develop along different dimensions and take different forms, and, depending on the choices made, the fairness implications may differ widely. Given this background, the paper offers an updated comparative analysis of the main provisions on work related conditionality currently existing in the Mis of Eu countries. The Italian case is discussed with special attention, given that this country has been the latest introducing a national minimum income scheme and it can be considered reflecting the current Eu trends in terms of work-related conditionality. Such analysis represents a prerequisite to devise fair minimum income schemes.
