The article describes the results of a qualitative research, finacied by EU aimed at knowing the degree of recognition of the proximity violence suffered by refu-gees / asylum seekers by operators working in the reception circuit in Sicilian CAS and SPRAR. The research involved conducting 78 interviews with stakeholders. The issue of proximity violence is therefore investigated through the testimonies of the operators interviewed and the plurality of causes and situations that make it possible.
