In the Italian municipality of San Martino in Rio, Emilia Romagna, a project has been recently presented which provides the activation of internships with some asylum seekers, to be carried out in the municipality itself. An allowance in complementary currency (convertible in Euros after six months) is acknowledged to trainees and can be spent only to purchase goods and services sold by the local retailers participating to the initiative. This case raised many reflections which will be developed in a seminar opened to sector’s experts, students and civil society. The seminar will take place in San Martino in Rio.

Programme 13-14 February 2019
