This paper has two purposes. The first is theoretical: to revise the use of the concept of moral economy in migration studies, and the related concept of deservingness. Different versions and meanings will be identified, highlighting their contribution to the understanding of rele-vant migration issues, but discussing their lack of consideration of a particular aspect: the conflict between competing moral economies. The second and related purpose will be to apply the concept of moral economy to an analysis of the public debate on the measure, related to the COVID-19 pandemic, enacted to regularise unauthorised immi-grants in Italy (May-August 2020). The measure has involved only workers, and workers employed in two sectors: agriculture and domes-tic/care services. This decision can be seen as a choice in terms of moral economy: some sectors and some immigrant workers have de-served more consideration than other workers.
Keywords: moral economy; deservingness; migration policies; regulari-zation
