Vie di fuga – Osservatorio permanente sui rifugiati (Escape Routes – Permanent refugee observatory) was the natural follow-up of the book «La frontiera addosso» [The border on our back] (Laterza, Bari, 2010) published thanks to the collaboration between the Ufficio Pastorale Migranti (Pastoral Office for Migrants) and the Turin branch of Caritas. The text, edited by Luca Rastello, resulted from the involvement of a substantial number of collaborators who helped to expose and narrate the situation of political asylum seekers in Italy and Europe. However, the need to inform did not end with the publication of this book. Continuing to apply the methods and points of view of “La frontiera addosso“, the Osservatorio intends to do research, inform and collect data and opinions about the topic of political asylum – in language accessible to everybody, whether operators in the sector or not.
The headquarters are at 3 Via Porporati, Torino, ITALY
