The MILAR project fosters the learning and testing of a new route towards the employability of refugees, adopting the model of Social Community Enterprise (SCE), at transnational level and in local communities in Italy, Sweden, Germany, and England.

SCEs, innovative but still relatively unexplored experiences, consist of a set of economic and social activities which are defined as ‘hybrid’, i.e. not supported by a single stakeholder/body but rather by multi-stakeholder networks (public and private, profit and noprofit stakeholders), sharing the same collective need, such as for example providing jobs for unemployed people.

This results in multisector (agriculture, tourism, environment, etc.) micro-projects which are mutually functional, and of both volunteer andcommercial/productive nature.
