Severe forms of labour exploitation of migrants: Spain in one of the top positions

The Fundamental Rights Agency of the European Union has just published a new report whose Spanish chapter was drawn up by the MPDL and GES. This report is focused on the severe forms of labour exploitation of migrants, which is revealed as an endemic problem particularly in the sectors of agriculture, construction, hotels and catering and domestic help, while regretting that perpetrators are at a little risk of prosecution. The report also finds that Spain is in one of the top positions of this unfortunate ranking. 


Childhood and Justice. First stage

The Fundamental Rights Agency of the European Union (FRA) has published, this May, the report on the first stage of the research on the relationship between the judicial area and children when the latter are witnesses, victims or parties of civil or penal proceedings. This first stage, in which both Gabinet d'Estudis Socials and the Moviment for Peace cooperated, relates to the views provided by professionals such as psychologists, social workers, etc., about these relations through 55 interviews and 1 Focus Group. The basic finding of this report is that the judicial system should be more child-friendly in Spain and everywhere in Europe and completely avoid that chiildren feel stressed or confused whenever they have any contact with it


New report of activities

In the section "internal Reports" of this website, GES has recently uploaded the English version of its last Report of activities, which covers the 2012-2014 period. The Report describes all the research and evaluation studies carried out throughout this period and stresses their main findings in terms of knowledge. The Report also includes a summary table with a list of all the topics GES has dealt with throughout its existence.


Commitment with Diversity

The Gabinet d'Estudis Socials has recently signed the Charter of Diversity, which represents its offiicial and renewed commitment with the principles of equality of opportunity and non-discrimination in a context of clear increase in societal diversity that is and must be seen as a mutual wealth.
