We are an institution that believes that it strives and that favors adherence to compliance with the declaration of human and human rights of 1948, recognizing and fighting for the equality of all people, in all areas and contexts. We firmly believe in people and equality as the basic principle of coexistence and tolerance to achieve a just and peaceful society ”.
- Jaume Tortosa Amor Researcher and Professor Tutor UNED Dénia: "To understand language we have to work on diversity in its basic concepts by taking a photo of what is happening and looking at them. The main axis would be gender, it is a very complex concept, related with feeling, with social and cultural factors, it is ultimately a socio-cultural construct. The body is also important as a space for expression, it becomes an element of political struggle. In fact, we relate it to capacitism. "
- Andrés López Ciruelos UNED Dénia Researcher and Sociologist: "Rigor is one of the characteristics of the work that has been carried out in this study prepared by the UNED Dénia, the qualitative method has been carried out. A study that has been carried out with 15 subjects and is sufficient to not creating, what is called, saturation due to the repetition of messages An election of people who occupy places with key positions to be able to study the answers as a result, I would highlight, the passive acceptance, and in the social plane the social rejection in public spaces ".

We must continue to apply institutional policies. "
