Along with this partnership, other five municipalities members of the ICC Intercultural Cities Network (Viareggio, Olbia, Casalecchio di Reno, Fucecchio and Novellara) will be involved in identifying mechanisms, within their own municipal administration, that can lead to both direct and indirect discrimination.
ITA.C.A. was developed on the assumption that the systemic and institutional discrimination as well as the racial-ethnic issue remains a barely debated subject, despite the fact that case law has often examined these issues.
The project is implemented together with UNAR (National Antidiscrimination Office), ASGI (Association for Legal Studies on Immigration) and the Intercultural Cities Program of the Council of Europe.
Alongside the activities foreseen within the Italian context, ITACA will also explore the European perspective.
This will be possible thanks to the attendance to the Council of Europe events, a study visits to an ICC Network City, and the organization of a policy sharing event held in Brussels.
ISMU offers its know-how in the field of scientific research and training on social phenomena, thanks to a team made up of researchers and experts from many different research areas.
Within the project ISMU will manage the preliminary research (monitoring and mapping of good practices) and the training phase. Furthermore, will be supporting the Municipalities of Reggio Emilia and Modena in the design of the guidelines for the anti-discrimination policies.
from November 2020 to October 2022
