Key findings

The report of this Council in relation to the draft report for the monitoring and evaluation of the Strategy to combat racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and other related forms of intolerance mentioned:
The difficulty caused by the absence, in statistics and surveys, of the nationality variable, to allow a better approximation to the possible existence of discrimination by reason of race, ethnic origin or nationality.
This absence would be in particular relevant concerning the data provided by the National Institute of Statistics and particularly in relation to the socio-labour field.

Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)

In November 2014 the Spanish Observatory for Racism and Xenophobia of the General Secretariat for Immigration and Emigration (Ministry of Employment and Social Security), requested a report of this Council in relation to the draft report for the monitoring and evaluation of the Integrated Strategy to combat racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and other related forms of intolerance, adopted by agreement of the Council of Ministers on November 2011.
