This research was carried out within the framework of the OurFoodOurFuture project (CSO-LA/2020/411-443), funded by the European
Commission as part of the DEAR (Development Education and Awareness Raising) Programme and promoted by WeWorld together with 15 other European organisations in order to promote new models of consumption, sustainable food supply chains and fair trade relations, respect for human rights of male and female workers.
The research investigates the labour exploitation of migrant women in the agrofood chain in Italy, in particular in the Agro Pontino area, in the Lazio region, interweaving elements of analysis concerning management of migratory flows, organisation of labour market, agro-industrial production, processing system and large-scale distribution, illicit labour brokering, the so-called “caporalato” (a form of illegal intermediation and exploitation of agricultural workers) and organised crime.
