Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] Through the analysis of the latest data statitistici it can be shown that in Sicily are interesting stabilization of the foreign presence processes. However not be underestimated nor forgotten - as it tends to do by politicians, scholars, with few exceptions, and the media - that human mobility to our island, in search of work and better living conditions or as ground passing, for over a decade knows the worst face of migration policies into the process of globalization. Sicily has in fact become a real frontier in the war that global capitalism and the so-called Fortress Europe fight against migrants. Sicily seems almost a paradigm of these processes, since it is characterized by a wide spread of the informal economy and irregular or undeclared work, which naturally favors the inclusion of migrant labor - even non-regular, irregular or illegal - in a position of insecurity and flexibility. By virtue of these processes appears Sicily Mediterranean border and frontier governing the immigrant workforce, confirming the Italian tendency to ethnicization and segmentation of the labor market, functional to some dynamics of globalization, contributing to racism necessary to the exploitation of migrants .
