The project is funded by the European programme Horizon 2020 and co-ordinated by the University of Eastern Finland (EUF). The overall goal of MATILDE is to examine the impact of migration on local development and territorial cohesion in European rural and mountain regions, in order to enhance these processes and support integration and the positive local outcomes arising from migration phenomena.
MATILDE analyses 13 local case studies in 10 European countries through the synergy between research institutions and local partners engaged in integration processes. Each case study delves into various themes, taking into consideration the characteristics of the rural and mountainous areas involved. The different case studies also allow for an in-depth exploration of various models of migration governance, welfare, and socio-economic systems.
FIERI is subcontractor of the Metropolitan City of Turin and is responsible for the case study of the metropolitan area of Turin, with a focus on the impact of voluntary settlement of migrants in mountain, rural, and peri-urban areas on housing models and the socio-spatial transformation of these areas. In this context, various aspects will be taken into consideration, not only housing but also the use of public spaces, the ways of life of local communities, their self perception, and their connections with the rest of the metropolitan area, with particular attention to the city of Turin.
