Discrimination of immigrant workers in the labor market in Italy
19 December 2004

Research commissioned and financed by the International Labour Office (ILO) on the discrimination of immigrants in personnel selection processes. The study aimed at establishing whether foreign workers are subject to discrimination in accessing the Italian labour market in three sample cities: Turin, Rome and Naples. To measure the levels of discrimination, practice tests were used, based on the standardised ILO Bovenkerk methodology and carried out by couples of actors posing as job seekers whose characteristics are matched except for nationality. The research included an updated survey, based on the available data, on the trends in the employment of foreign workers, on the characteristics of such employment, and on the safety of the jobs held by migrant workers. The project identified indicators, dimensions and causes of discrimination, including indirect and institutional ones, with the purpose of focussing the attention of the media and of the policy makers on an issue that is severely overlooked in Italy. The research was co-ordinated by Prof. Enrico Allasino, Prof. Emilio Reyneri, Prof. Alessandra Venturini, Prof. Giovanna Zincone (January 2003-July 2003). The research report produced was presented in Rome on the 6th April 2004 and in Turin on the 12th of November 2004.
