On Thursday, March 1, will be held the presentation of the “Socio-legal report on the situation of immigrants in the Valencian Community”, prepared from the Human Rights Institute of the University of Valencia (IDH-UV) and coordinated by the professor Albert Mora. The act will take place in the auditorium (building B) of the Administrative City October 9, at 11:30 am.

The report, commissioned by the General Directorate of Social Inclusion of the Department of Equality and Inclusive Policies, has been carried out by professors Albert Mora, Ángeles Solanes and Javier de Lucas (of the Human Rights Institute) and by Professors Mª Eugenia González ( of the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology of the UV) and Ana Isabel Vázquez (of the Faculty of Social Work of the UCLM and the Department of Social Work and Social Services of the UV). The report, explains Professor Mora, “offers a complete and updated overview of the social and legal reality of immigration in the Valencian Community, with special attention to issues related to integration processes, public policies and coexistence in the diversity”.

To carry out this radiography, an exhaustive analysis of secondary data has been carried out and in-depth interviews and discussion groups have been carried out with experts from public services, social entities and academic institutions. Based on this diagnosis, the experts have presented fifty proposals for a Valencian integration policy committed to the guarantee of rights and intercultural coexistence.
The Institute of Human Rights of the Universitat de València (IDH-UV) has launched in 2018 a broad program of activities, coinciding with the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Created in 2005, the IDH-UV received the Mention of Excellence from the Ministry of Education for its doctoral program Human Rights, Democracy and International Justice. The IDH-UV is part of the Consolider project in which twelve research groups from different Spanish universities participate, coordinated by the Bartolomé de las Casas Human Rights Institute of the Carlos III University of Madrid.
