Soumahoro is an Italian-Ivorian activist, trade unionist and sociologist.

As a trade unionist, he is currently engaged in the process of trade union organisation of Italian and migrant labourers in the agricultural supply chain of the Italian countryside.
As an activist, he is concerned with social justice and the right to free circulation, against any form of racism and exploitation.

In his talk, Mr Soumahoro will touch upon issues to do with: current anti-immigration politics in Europe and in Italy;
anti-solidarity discourses, politics and sentiments that are currently shaping the Italian socio-political panorama;
the economic, social, and human abuse of migrants in Southern Italy, between legality and illegality, and the fight for workers’ rights and against discrimination; positive voices of solidarity and anti-discrimination, and future perspectives on immigration.

The talk will be delivered in French and simultaneous translation to English will be available at the event.
