Hackathon Ethic Jobs in Agriculture (EJA)

A Hackathon to find a scalable solution and tackle «caporalato»

The issue

The phenomenon of labor exploitation is a common issue of several economic sectors. Despite the initiatives put in place during the last years, especially at the regulatory level, it remains an unresolved problem. To deal with it, it is necessary to act on the one hand, on the repression in case of violation of the laws, and on the other hand on activities aimed at achieving greater awareness of the phenomenon. At the same time, it is essential to act to eliminate, or at least alleviate, the conditions facilitating its occurrence.

The goal

Social Innovation Teams (SIT) organized a process of comparison and sharing of ideas to find a scalable solution to the phenomenon of illegal hiring.
In the first meeting, existing solutions were analyzed and new ideas were explored in order to select the most suitable for solving the problem. In the second meeting the selected solution was discussed and refined.


The process started in mid-December 2021 and ended in March 2022.
