This initiative spearheaded by EUROsociAL was intended to promote the sharing of experiences and good practice in social policy aimed at supporting social cohesion between European and Latin American institutions. To that end, EUROsociAL commissioned ODI to undertake four case studies, two drawn from Latin America (‘Oportunidades’ and ‘Programa 3 X 1 para Migrantes’, both in Mexico), and two drawn from Europe (Sure Start in the UK and Social Inclusion in Southern Italy).
This report looks at a wide range of social inclusion policies and programmes in six Italian regions supported by the European Structural Funds during the period 2000-2006.
