The Spanish Commission for Refugees (CEAR) is a non-profit organization founded in 1979. Its character is volunteer, humanitarian, independent and plural. CEAR was founded based on strong ethical values, such as justice, solidarity, freedom, equality, plurality, transparency and coherence. The defense of these values is our essential motivation to carry out our tasks.
Our mission is to defend and promote Human Rights and the complete development of refugees, stateless persons and migrants who are in need of international protection and/or exposed to social exclusion.
CEAR articulates its work through two essential strategic guidelines:
– Social Intervention Model (Legal Department, Sheltering Department, Social Department, Training and Employment Department).
– Advocacy/Social Impact and Participation Model (Impact, awareness and management of knowledge; Social networks and movements; International strategy; Intercultural coexistence; Volunteer work and social participation)
These strategies are complementary and mutually dependent. They have been designed to defend the right to access asylum and Human Rights; to help eradicating the causes behind coerced movement; to defend inclusive migration policies that respect Human Rights; to promote universal citizenship for all individuals, access to all their rights and the opportunity to enjoy them completely; to encourage critical-thinking and committed citizenship towards the building of a more equal planet where intercultural coexistence is possible.
