RELEVANCE OF THE ACTION (MAX 3 PAGES)

2.1. Relevance to the objectives/sectors/themes/specific priorities of the Call for Proposals


The aim of the action is to enhance cultural and social capital of migrants workers as resources that, at
individual and community level, contributes to the development process. of both origin and destination
countries. Among Latin American countries, the focus is on PeruvianPeruvian migrants workers.
Priorities are the creation and coordination of a transnational activities on workers and entrepreneurs in
order to promote a strong link between migration and development .
Activities are well suited to support capacity building and cooperation in education, professional
training, encouraging the enterprises internationalization process, promote job placement program,
getting practical help in finding a job. The Program focuses on job-search training, career counselling and
job-finding assistance. Specifically, the project aims is to increase the number of qualified or skilled
migrants who manage to fit into jobs that match their skills. The project will also help the families
remained in Peru to improve their awareness of their professional skills and entrepreneurial capabilities
thereby creating social networks between Italy and Peru. To this purpose, the action will strive to:
1. the activation of information’s programs, professional training, support for entrepreneurial
initiatives aimed at migrants in both Italy and in the country of origin (Peru);
2. the project aims at promoting a wider recognition of the qualification titles in a bidirectional
way, it means for the immigrants that attend courses in Italy and for the rest of the family in Peru, to
have a recognition of the diplomas, both abroad, and coming back in the originally country.
3. the activation of programs aimed at strengthening and creating partnership structures between
migrants in Italy and their families in Peru.

2.2 1.2 Relevance to the particular needs and constraints of the target country/countries, rregion(s)
and/or relevant sectors (including synergy with other EC initiatives and avoidance of duplication).
The proposal adopt the notion of cultural and social capital has theoretical tool to project the action (J.
Jacobs 1961; P. Bourdieu 1983; J. S. Coleman 1988; R. D. Putnam ;1993; 2000). Increasing evidence shows
that social capital is decisive for societies to prosper economically and for development to be sustainable.
Social capital, when enhanced in a positive manner, can improve project effectiveness and sustainability by
building the community’s capacity to work together to address their common needs, fostering greater
inclusion and cohesion, and increasing transparency and accountability. The notion of social capital with
regard to economic and societal development and by management experts has became a way of thinking
about organizational development. Social capital manifests itself across many dimensions and contexts,
exerting powerful influence on how people and institutions operate(World Bank, 1999). In order to translate
the theory of Social Capital into a more practical construct, the main goal of this framework is to provide a
guide on how SC can be incorporated into operations. The main activities will be directed through strategies
for designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating effectiveness of CDD operations. Adopting the
conceptual map above described the action is projected focusing on:

 Migration flows characteristics and comparison;

 Migrants Cultural Capital, education achievement, recognition and matching of qualifications of


school and Universityeducational degrees

 Social capital resources

 Labour market and attitude towards enterprise creation


As for migration flows: According to migration official data released by ISTAT (National Institute of
Statistics) on 31 December 2007, foreign residents in Italy were 3.432,651, of which 1.701.817 males and

EuropeAid/128764/C/ACT/Multi – Annex A – Grant application form 10


PART A – CONCEPT NOTE – TO BE SUBMITTED BY ALL APPLICANTS
1.730.834 females. These represent 5.8% of total resident population while on January 1 st 2003, 2004 and
2005 they were respectively 2.7%, 3.4% and 4.1% of total resident population.
Currently, in Italy, the number of Latin American immigrants are about 10% of non-EU population present in
the country. Although the incoming migration is fairly recent it has shown remarkable growth rates. While
from 1995 to 2006 the number of regular non-EU immigrants in Italy registered an increasing rate of 2.5 ,
those of Latin America increased of 3.5. According data reported by ISTAT for 2007 migrants from
Central and Southern America and legally resident in Italy are 298.860 of which 77.629
PeruvianPeruvians. From ISTAT data, it is noted that the Latin American migration in Italy is as distinctly
feminine. Compared to roughly 50% of the total number of foreign women in Italy, the percentage of total
female migrants from Latin America is more than 65%. In particular, with regard to Peru, the
PeruvianPeruvian Statistical Institute records that Italy is the fourth country chosen to immigrate, United
States is ranked first with 593.165 PeruvianPeruvian citizens, the second country is Argentina with 271.995,
and the third is Spain with 252.817.
As for migrants cultural capital: the number of migrants from Peru with a high educational level is
higher compared with that of other Latin American countries. Nevertheless, often the host country is not
able toto provide suitable employment for immigrants to their qualification.
guarantee to immigrants a job corresponding with their qualifications. The dynamic observed is that the
first generation of migrants entering the labour market were not asking for an occupation corresponding to
their level of education , whereas now the new generation migrants are trying to assert their diplomas.
qualification. Italy in recent decades has seen an exponential growth of immigration from different European
and non European countries, therefore recognition and legal equivalencey of curricula reached in the
country of origin is not yet fully accomplished. Enforcing a formative, educational or professional
experience in Italy when professional qualifications or certification has been earned abroad often involves a
long and costly legislative iter.
But the need for recognition may also be the opposite: it may be necessary to validate abroad school
diplomas, professional qualifications or qualifications obtained in Italy.
There are quite frequent cases of migrants who have lived in their countries of origin, work experience
not matching their skills and not satisfying their expectations. This experience can be reproduced in the new
host country and most likely will be repeated again when returning to country of origin. This is the case of
migration for study purposes and once returning home finding difficulties for recognition and equivalence of
qualifications are far from direct .
Over time different systems were established to compare and recognize the validity of a qualification
obtained in another country. Generally, States promote direct agreements between them to build mechanisms
for comparability and equivalence, or to develop systems that allow for the recognition of qualifications.
Lately these bilateral agreements have been replaced by a recognition systems promoted within the European
Union. A series of directives established criteria for the recognition of diplomas and professional
qualifications obtained among Member States. Nevertheless the process of recognition is still complex, long
and costly for immigrants. As matter of fact immigrants, while waiting for the execution of existing
regulations process, see vanishing significant opportunities for their future.
As for Social Capital: the depth interviews, conducted to assess the feasibility of this proposal, revealed
large capacities of the PeruvianPeruvian migrants to activate social capital resources (network of
interpersonal relations within which people move) and cultural capital (qualification , previous working
experience and the subjective sphere of individual motivations and expectations).
An adequate support to these important strategic resources and capabilities enables to overcome the
difficulties encountered in the best use of skills and expertise both in terms of implementation of individual
projects that contribute to development of the countries where immigrants operate.

On behalf of SC, the data demonstrate that PeruvianPeruvians immigrants in Italy have shown a special
aptitude for the realization of business activities, creation of association and enterprise. One of the founding
principles of the Union Treaty (Art.43) provides that citizens of Member States to establish themselves
freely between EU countries to do business (“the principle of freedom of establishment”).
Just to make this principle working it has been built a system that ensures the qualification of entrepreneurs
who plan on moving into other EU countries. A first set of directives called for eight professions a
mechanism of automatic recognition (lawyer, architect, obstetricians, general practitioners, nurse, dentist,
pharmacist, veterinary). The assumption is that the entitlement, to carry out that activity, obtained in any EU
country is valid everywhere in the European Union. In other words, it generates an automatic recognition in
other EU countries. This is made possible by the process of standardization of courses and training content

EuropeAid/128764/C/ACT/Multi – Annex A – Grant application form 11


PART A – CONCEPT NOTE – TO BE SUBMITTED BY ALL APPLICANTS
that the European Union over time has managed to establish. In accordance with the principles of the
European Union, Italy has signed a number of bilateral agreements sometimes characterized by an interest in
border states, sometimes to strengthen economic partnership or to consolidate relations with the Italian origin
as a result emigration ( Austria, Argentina, Germany, Malta, San Marino, Switzerland, Ecuador, France ,
Great Britain, Mexico, Slovenia, Spain, etc).
With the Andean countries and, among them, Peru, there are not bilateral treaties that can meet the need
of recognition of degrees, but in deed there are agreements between universities, as in the case of an
agreement between the “University of Padova” (Italy) and the “Universidad Nacional de Trujillo” (Peru)
, which, in addition to exchanging professors, organize and conduct post-graduate training courses with
recognition in both countries. This positive experience is assumed as a reference point and a base for the
implementation of the action under this proposal.
2.3 2.3. Describe and define the target groups and final beneficiaries, their needs and constraints
and how the action will address these needs.

This proposal involves 250 peruvianperuvian migrants with qualified titles, that live and work in Italy with
under qualified job and their families who want to improve their skills. They are from two provinces of Peru
(Puno and Trujillo) and one of the main districts of Lima (San Juan de Lurigancho) that were, according to
the PeruvianPeruvian Statistical Institute, the main places of last residence of PeruvianPeruvians who have
migrated abroad. As matter of facts among the provinces of Peru, Puno occupies the 4 th place ,Trujillo
occupies the 6th place and, among the districts, San Juan de Lurigancho (Lima) occupies the 4 th place.
The basis for the choice of above partners in Peru is determined by the results of different researchess
carried out by the University of Padova and the Universidad Nacional de Trujillo, who as previously
mentioned, have an ongoing experience of exchange and mutual cooperation.
This studies has underlined that in Peru doesn’t existe an appropriate political view for immigrants who live
abroad and at the same time in Italy is very difficult for immigrants to find a qualified job.
In addition, it is worth to underline that the other partner COPEI (Coordination of Peruvianperuvian
pprofessionals and entrepreneurs in Italy) and the province of Puno have already started initiatives of
cooperation for which they have established relationships with local authorities to develop targeted
action to support tourism.

Finally the project aims to respond to the exploitation of the PeruvianPeruvian capital of migrants in
Italy and their families in Peru, and is devoted to meet one of the most pressing problems of migration:
Detected problem:
Many qualified migrants are not able to fit into jobs that match their skills.
Problem causes:
a. Lack of information programs, education and professional training to help job placement of
migrants both in the countries of destination and in origin country (Peru);
b. Scarcity of migrants who manage to have their qualifications or qualifications recognized;
c. Shortage or absence of support provided by the structures associated with migrants in Italy and
their families in Peru

2.4. Particular added-value elements

As already mentioned, according to the data ISTAT the PeruvianPeruvian citizens regularyregularly present
in Italy are 77.629 of which 30.883 are men and 46.746 are woman. Since 60,2% of PeruvianPeruvian
presence in Italy are woman, this project is specially directed on women workers and their families in Peru
for rejoining family reason. One other important element that enforce us to develop activities in favour of
this immigrants is that these two provinces (Puno and Trujillo), where the majority of the PeruvianPeruvian
immigrants came from, are the poorest and more disadvantage provinces of Peru.
