    This article analyzes racism, racial discrimination and other forms of intolerance in Spain from a human rights perspective. It will critically evaluate Spain’s formal legal obligations relative to the Convention on the Elimination of All forms of Racism Discrimination (CERD), and Article 13, as well as the recently enacted antidiscrimination measures of the European Union commonly known as the Race and Employment Directives (Race Council Directive 2000/43/CE, June 29, 2000 and the Employment Council Directive 2000/78/CE November 27, 2001). CERD is the main United Nations treaty dealing with racial discrimination and was one of the first core international human rights treaties to be adopted. Spain as a state party to CERD, must take a series of specific steps aimed at eliminating racial discrimination. Additionally, it is required to submit detailed periodic reports to the CERD committee (the CERD committee monitors the implementation of the treaty) on its overall anti-racist policies, practices and procedures.
