Description

Over the past 20 years Spain has seen a large increase in immigration, which has led many to label the country as the door to Europe. This thesis examines the immigration that has occurred particularly in southern Spain and how factors such as national and regional identity, gender, and the current economic crisis have affected peoples perceptions on immigration. This thesis draws upon personal interviews conducted with directors of non-governmental organizations in the cities of Crdoba, Sevilla, and Almera as well as literary and film analysis.
