  • Report - Survey 2017. Evolution of Racism, Xenophobia and other forms of Intolerance in Spain
    • Synopsis

      We publish the report on the analysis of results of the survey Attitudes towards immigration X, carried out by the Center for Sociological Research (CIS) in 2017. The results of the report show the same positive trend regarding the tolerant attitude of Spanish nationals towards immigration, although some variables show a slight regression in comparison to 2016.  Nevertheless, it should be indicated that 2016 was an exceptional year with the best results of the whole period analysed (since 2007). In 2017 a proportion of 54% of the respondents considered immigration positively, being the third best result of the period after 2007 (58.9%) and 2016 (54.3%). The report also shows that factors such as the economic situation, dramatic events, the media and political speech have an influence on the attitudes towards immigration. Therefore, it is crucial to continue monitoring these attitudes and implementing prevention action, raising awareness and fighting racism, xenophobia and other related intolerance.
