The centerpiece of the meeting is the integration, a fundamental element of public policy on immigration as stated in the existing plan for the social integration of immigrants in the Region of Murcia, 2006/2009

As emphasized in the diagnosis of young people in the Region of Murcia, 2008, "in recent years, the Region of Murcia has excelled as one of the main reception areas for immigrants. Thus, in the last decade, the proportion of people of foreign origin in relation to the total number of Murcia has risen from 0.8% in 1996 to 14, 5% in 2007. This increase has been even more pronounced in the age range between 15 and 29 years in the people of foreign origin have gone from 1% in 1996 to exceed 20% (20.7) in 2007, staying above computation in Spain, where foreign-born population accounts for 15% of total Spanish young people. "

According to the findings of the latest study on Youth and Immigration Youth Institute of Spain, 2008, young people show generally favorable attitudes toward the integration of immigrants:

Spanish young people accept, the vast majority:

-86, 4% work with immigrants.

-81, 1% immigrant friends your child brings home.

-77 '3% Live in the same neighborhood where immigrants live.

-77 '3% That an immigrant is his boss at work.

-73, 0% live in the same block in which immigrants live.

-68 '2% That their child marrying an immigrant.

-52, 9% rent an immigrant.

According to the report, about seven in ten young people (69%) report having between his group of friends that any immigrant "suggests favorable processes or integration scenarios, and that in future most of these friendships Spanish and immigrant youth and consolidate stable relations of friendship. "

But we also find negative aspects that may hinder the integration process.

Thus, the question of whether you think that in general, the Spanish are racist? The 61'8% think it compared to 32.

9% did not.

Most youth (64%) feel more positive than negative for the company which is composed of people of race, religion and culture.
