Associazione NO CAP
Created in 2011, NO CAP was the first association in Italy to highlight the phenomenon of illegal recruitment of foreign labour and the exploitation of these workers, triggering a process of awareness at all levels that led to the adoption of the first national law against this type of practice and the proposal of a new economic model based on ethics and sustainable development.
The association is very active in Italy helping migrant workers in their search for employment and housing; the provision of legal, linguistic, etc. support, as well as medical assistance.
Its founder, Yvan Sagnet, was himself a victim of this exploitation upon his arrival in Italy. His work has earned him the recognition of Knight of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Italy in 2016. He has received other awards such as the Renato B. Fabrizi National Award for the book Ghetto Italy. Foreign workers between illegal hiring and exploitation and the International Award ‘Angelo della Pace’ for his social and political commitment in defence of exploited migrants. NO CAP activities have been recognized as ‘best practice’ by the OECD.
