“The love of one’s country is a splendid thing. But why love should stop at the border?” Pablo Casals

Historically, Spain has always been a country that emits immigrants. At the end of the XIX century, spaniards emigrated to Latin America so as to improve their economic situation. Then, especially in the 60’s, the situation changed: the favourite destination was Europe (France, Germany,Switzerland…). These days, the roles have been reversed.

Jacobo Muñoz Comet explains that the intensity and volume of arrivals has achieved such an enormus magnitud: Spain is the second country of the OECD, only behind USA, that has received more inmigrantes during the first decade of the XXI century.

The most worrying migratory crisis nowadays is the mediterranean conflict.

In this section, we want to explain what is this catastrophe, which ones are the affected and why nowadays it seems to be getting worse.
