Associations and collaborative work with different institutions and organizations, both public and private, and multidisciplinary approaches are a substantial part of our work that focus on two main lines of research:

Respect and protection of human rights.
The necessary attention to cultural diversity and the challenges it poses for promotion.
This area focuses on the study and understanding of violent radicalization processes and their various manifestations and implications, and de-radicalization processes:
Risk and vulnerability analysis in security matters.
Possible relationships between terrorism and organized crime.
Analysis of the processes of disengagement and de-radicalization.
The mission of the research and projects department is to transform culture by giving value to research, development and innovation at the service of society.
The vision of the research and projects department is to become a reference center in promoting social cohesion and good governance in the face of racism and various forms of extremism.
Commitment to science and innovation:
We believe that scientific knowledge is the basis of progress and, therefore, we assume as our own responsibility the generation and transformation of knowledge into innovations that have an impact on society.
Social involvement and inclusion:
We defend the value of a cohesive society where no one feels excluded and minorities have a voice and vote.
Transformation through cooperation:
We hold that cooperation between the different bodies that make up societies is the only possible way for social transformation with a focus on civil society and minorities.
