This study sought to deepen as immigration can meet the needs of the Italian labor market, a debated issue which is not restricted only to specialists and involves ever larger groups of public, some of which are in favor of immigrants and partly against.
This study, promoted by the European Commission EMN network at Community level, is a precious contribution to put into circulation reliable data and documentation to be analyzed rigorously, demonstrating the present and future implications.
The statistical approach is interwoven with the legal and political-administrative approach and, given its significant social impact, deserves to be treated with rigor and simplicity. These are standards, which this study is inspired which, without claiming to be able to determine a general harmony on an issue so controversial in many respects, at least intend to share a common basis without which migration policies are doomed to remain ineffective.
This study, which was supported by a qualified Scientific Committee, makes available and analyze the statistics from the most important databases, presents the national laws governing the employment of immigrants, shows what can be the future according to the forecasts and, finally, focuses on the implications arising not only at internal level but also widening the view to cooperation with those Third Countries from which immigrants come.
In a field of investigation so hard tenacity and humility are important. The findings show that the journey made, as to be enhanced, does not exhaust the task to be pursued in an innovative way, without defining the immigration in a negative light and framing it as an opportunity, though not unrelated problems.
The Italian case, a new Country of massive immigration, thus represents a useful experience to better frame the issue of migration within the EU.
