Spain is a diverse country, but police disproportionately stop and search people based on their racial, ethnic, or religious appearance. Research shows that ethnic profiling has a profound and long-term impact on individuals' sense of belonging. 

In this report, Open Society Justice Initiative and Rights International Spain present the personal stories and portraits of people who deal with this discrimination in their everyday lives. Hear the voices of people who know the pain of being singled out because of who they are—and of police officers who want things to change.

The individuals interviewed challenge fundamental ideas written in the Spanish Constitution that the country advocates for freedom, justice, equality, and political pluralism.
