Project Description

This research was co-financed by the European Commission, Directorate General for Employment and Social Affairs, under the Call for proposals VP/2001/014 for preparatory actions to combat and prevent social exclusion (Budget Line B3 – 4105). The objective of this work was to understand and explain the reasons for and the forms of social exclusion of immigrants, and how they are brought into economic and social marginalisation, in three European countries: Denmark, Italy and Spain.

The international research network was made up of university institutes and associations with a long, established field experience and strong theoretical elaboration skills.

In Italy, the study and social research co-operative El Sur analysed the Italian case and particularly the city of Naples; punto.sud and the Non Governmental Organisation Cooperazione Internazionale (COOPI) researched the city of Milan.

In Denmark, the Federico Caffè Centre – Dept. Of Social Science at Roskilde University and the non profit organisation Training, Education & Development Association (TED) studied the Danish case and the city of Copenhagen.

In Spain, the research was carried out by the NGO Centre d’Estudis Africans (CEA), in Barcelona.
