Dedalus is a non profit making organization born in 1981; in the first five years it has been mostly active in the promotion of the public debate on social and economic changes, mainly during presentations of books and public talks.
From 1986, when a group of sociologists joined as new members, Dedalus’ interests focuses on migration flows to Italy and particularly on migrants’ paths and strategies of insertion in the local labour market.
This activity engendered the development of a planning department and the promotion of social experimentation projects and new methodologies, as the introduction of the cultural mediation in the public services sector.
In 1999, Dedalus transformed into a social cooperative – as defined by the Italian law n. 381 of 1991 – working on the integration of migrants, through the design and the implementation of specific social services.
