Migrant labour exploitation in agriculture

The Black Mediterranean

In collaboration with colleagues Ilaria Ippolito and Mimmo Perrotta, Timothy Raeymaekers launches the edited volume (in Italian) 'Braccia rubate dall’agricoltura: Pratiche di sfruttamento del lavoro migrante'.

Published with SEB27 press, the collection addresses the plight of migrant labourers in Italy’s regional agricultural supply chains, from Puglia to Piemonte, emphasizing the systemic linkages between repressive migration laws, retail monopolies and geographic marginalization. The book represents one of the outcomes of the New Plantations project funded by the Swiss Network for International Studies.
