Hide / Show Abstract

Only in the last decade Italy has witnessed significant immigration inflows. Most immigration has been illegal despite legislative changes, leading to quotas, though a series of regularisations has granted many immigrants legal status. Immigrants have probably increased overall prosperity and provisions of the 2002 law for cumbersome recruitment procedures may be questioned, although the effort for simplification through the "sportello unico" (one stop shop) should improve the situation once implemented.
