Barcelona, city of rights
The “Barcelona, city of rights” programme is aimed at including the human-rights-based approach in public policies, and at designing and implementing policies on human rights based on thematic priorities, such as developing the right to the city and the human rights in the city, the fight against hate speech and discrimination and the work for full citizenship
Human rights in the city refer to the rights of all people living in the city, irrespective of their administrative status or passport.
Declarations of intolerance, discriminatory treatment and disparagement of people for the simple fact of their belonging to or being included in a group are a violation of human rights and an attack on society as a whole.
We understand full citizenship as the status people enjoy when they can access all the rights that are recognised and guaranteed in the city.
Barcelona, diverse city
Barcelona is a pluralistic city where people of different origins, cultures and religious beliefs live side by side. The promotion of this diverse, intercultural and multi-faceted city model is one of the goals of the public policies, developed in strategies such as the promotion of interculturality, action against rumours, local strategy with roma people, or work for religious diversity
The city’s commitment to the intercultural model is aimed at advancing from a multicultural Barcelona to an intercultural Barcelona: a diverse Barcelona that coexists peacefully and builds the city jointly and through cooperation.
One of the obstacles to positive community life in diversity is ignorance of the other. Such ignorance is often transformed into fear or reluctance, and is expressed through rumours and false stereotypes.
Roma have an extremely diverse culture, they are not a people living in a single country and that they adapt to the territory they live in, without losing their essence. Despite their nomadic traditions, they came to Barcelona over 600 years ago and are part of our diverse society.
In the recent time, religion has gained relevance and visibility around the world, and cultural and religious diversity has become evident in our city.
