IPCM VALUES THE NEW SPANISH NATIONALITY LAWS

on Monday, 19 October 2015 07:29.

The International Platform for Cooperation and Migration (IPCM) warmly welcomes the two new Spanish laws on obtaining citizenship: one for the descendants of Sephardic Jews expelled in 1492, and another for foreigners resident in Spain.

In both cases, the procedure clarifies and unifies the criteria for demonstrating knowledge of Spanish language and constitutional and socio-cultural knowledge on Spain. This is done through two tests designed by the Cervantes Institute (www.nacionalidad.cervantes.es).

The IPCM welcomes this effort to integrate foreigners socially and politically by means of simple objective and identical tests for all applicants. The IPCM congratulates the Spanish authorities and, in particular, the Cervantes Institute.

THE IPCM CALLS FOR THE RECOGNITION OF ASYLUM IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

on Monday, 19 October 2015 07:27.

The International Platform for Cooperation and Migration (IPCM) expresses its deep concern over the situation of thousands of people arriving illegally in the EU. Many of them come from countries at war and are persecuted for belonging to an ethnic group or religion, or for their political ideas. Therefore, the recognition of their rights cannot be ignored. In particular, the right to asylum must be guaranteed in each and every one of the EU countries.

The IPCM appreciates the efforts of the EU and its Member States in attending to immigrants and refugees; as well as protecting the European population from radical and terrorist threats.

The IPCM appealed to the European population not to be swayed by populist and extremist ideas (whether from left or right), but to always maintain an open and democratic spirit in a pluralistic society.
