Racism Postcolonialism Europe

This chapter examines the cultural dimensions of recent immigration policy in Spain and looks at ways of counteracting continuing racial prejudice in Europe, much of which is embedded in colonialist attitudes to refugees and other groups of migrants. It considers ‘intercultural consciousness’ that supports and promotes the idea of a ‘reinvigorated multicultural society’. The chapter argues that no political consensus exists in Spain as to whether integration should be managed using a French model (assimilation), a British model (communitarianism), or some combination of both. Increased monitoring of racism in Spain has arguably increased public awareness of discriminatory practices and highlighted the need for intercultural dialogue, but it has also reconfirmed the existence of rampant discrimination at all levels, such as the labour and the housing markets.

Keywords:   Spain, immigration policy, migrants, racism, discrimination, communitarianism, assimilation, refugees, intercultural consciousness
