SU.PR.EME. Italia - Southern Italy Against Migrants' Labour Exploitation and Marginalization - seeks to prevent and contrast labour exploitation of migrant workers in the agriculture sector in Italy’s southern regions (Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Puglia and Sicilia) by improving the effectiveness of labour inspections, enabling access to protections mechanisms for potential victims, and promoting coherent and coordinated interventions among relevant authorities.
Within the framework of the project Su.pr.eme., IOM focuses on five main areas:
SUPPORT TO THE NATIONAL LABOUR INSPECTORATE (INL)
Supporting the National Labour Inspectorate by providing cultural mediation services to mitigate language and cultural barriers, and consolidate trust between migrant workers and labour inspectors during inspections.
Building the capacities of both labour inspectors and cultural mediators on key topics such as immigration law, labour exploitation, protection mechanisms as well as trends and features on migration to promote a multicultural sensitivity.
Conducting awareness raising among migrant workers of labour rights, fair recruitment and labour practices, as well as protection mechanisms for potential victims of labour exploitation as provided for by the Italian law system.
PRIVATE SECTOR ENGAGEMENT
Promoting private sector engagement at the local, national and international level by identifying best practices and building capacities towards a shared understanding of labour rights and dully-implemented recruitment and labour practices.
SUPPORT TO PREFECTURES
Strengthening the capacities of selected Prefectures to monitor socio-economic conditions of vulnerable migrant workers living in informal settlements and to coordinate targeted initiatives about migrant workers’ integration.
Su.pr.eme. is a 18-month project funded by the European Commission - Emergency Assistance Fund (EMAS) and it is implemented under the Lead of the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.
