Political, social and economic research and analysis – including the collection and processing of data and facts emerging from our projects – combine to form a methodology which allows us to examine specific phenomena.

Our publications are based on this methodology.

It’s important to rely on data, because only thus can we define the real scale of the phenomena we are dealing with and understand where intervention is most urgent.

The data we collect, process and analyse allow us to provide an overview on the phenomenon being researched, leading at the same time to operational proposals in the form of strategic recommendations addressed to institutions.

We present below brief summaries of the most important publications we have edited. For further information we suggest the consultation of the specific insight sections.

“Migrants and integration: a challenge for the future” is a joint analysis by Cesvi and ISPI. The paper highlights the savings in terms of public expenditure generated by the drop of sea arrivals on the Italian coasts since July 2017.

The “challenge for the future” is to invest those savings in integration programmes, which in a long-term perspective will have positive effects on both economy and welfare.
