Finding New Ways for Refugees and Asylum Seekers’ Inclusion
A Reflexive Analysis of Practices Developed by the Third Sector and Civil Society in Trentino
This essay aims at analysing the role played by civil society organisations in refugees’ social and labour inclusion, highlighting the assumptions that drive their action and the challenges they are facing in the light of the recent political changes in the Italian scenario. The social realities investigated spare no effort for migrants’ integration, sometimes finding solutions beyond the reception system. In this paper, we discuss their practices, analysing the borders (juridical, political, territorial, corporative, social, institutional, symbolic) they act and react, reflecting also on the assumptions that drive their actions, and crossing them with migrants’ assumptions and biographical trajectories, to explore how they intersect, impacting on their migration and integration paths.
