The project has its origin in the call of the Progress Program 2013 for the Employment and Social Solidarity of the European Commission. It was implemented from November 2014 to October 2015 and then it received additional funding for the Awareness Days in October and December 2016, and December 2017. The project was implemented in Castilla y León, Andalucía, Comunidad Valenciana and Ciudad Autónoma de Ceuta, and expression of interest was received from Castilla-La Mancha, Galicia, Comunidad de Murcia, Aragón, Comunidad de Madrid and Navarra.
The general aim is to impart training for the prevention and detection of racism, xenophobia and other related forms of intolerance in the classroom, reinforcing the positive image of migrants’ integration and ethnic minorities in the field of education. As well, the project aimed to comply with state provision for the Education axis “Comprehensive Strategy against racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia, and other related forms of intolerance”. The methodology used was the narrative synthesis, review of pre-existing literature, and awareness campaign using stakeholders’ engagement.
The project was funded by EU and governmental funds: Spanish Observatory of Racism and Xenophobia (OBERAXE) and National Centre for Innovation and Educational Research (CNIIE) of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports.
