Title: Migrants: One Year after the Humanitarian Corridor
Short summary: In 2018 three humanitarian organisations broughtlegally into Italy 500 people from the refugee camps of Eritrea, South Sudan and Somalia. Beyond a safe and legal trip, the project included a one-year integration course. A total of 106 families and 90 single people were spread across 87 cities in Northern and Southern Italy. Since their arrival, the goal of the humanitarian corridor was clear: to give refugees the tools to become self-sufficient in one year so that they can then fly on their own. What happened to these refugees? What were their difficulties? What is the result of this pioneering experience?
