CESIE is a non-governmental organisation, established in 2001, inspired by the work and theories of the Italian sociologist Danilo Dolci (1924-1997). CESIE contributes to the active participation of people, civil societies and institutions through the implementation of projects on various thematic areas, towards the promotion of growth and development, always valuing diversity in the respect of ethics and human development.
The organisation is dedicated to the promotion of research and development so as to increase and improve future-oriented innovation processes in educational, social, economic and cultural spheres.
CESIE is strongly committed towards the integration of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers into the local community through our daily work in one of the most multicultural areas of Palermo: training activities aimed at increasing employability skills; socio-cultural actions and awareness campaigns; language courses; seminars on intercultural dialogue and prevention of radicalism. Moreover, CESIE develops and delivers training programmes for diverse target groups including trainers and employers.

CESIE is involved as coordinator and partner of projects under EU Programmes: Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs, ERASMUS+, Daphne III, Europe for Citizens, TEMPUS, ENI, Horizon2020, DG Justice, DG Home.
