    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The government of Costa Rica is working on the creation of a policy against racism and discrimination, including constitutional and legal reforms.

    Gioconda Ubeda, Deputy Foreign Minister, told reporters that this policy will seek a cultural change in the country through amendments to the Constitution to the Costa Rican government until “a multicultural and multiethnic society” is declared.

    They are proposing legal reforms that make racism punishable as a crime.

    “The purpose of the National Policy is to make Costa Rica inclusive, equitable, and responsive to the socio-cultural and ethnically diverse society,” said Ubeda.

    The initiative, which could be ready this year, also seeks to narrow “corrective actions” in public institutions to prevent discrimination and better access to opportunities from the perspective of human rights in areas such as health and education, the vice chancellor said.

    According to official data cited by Ubeda, about 20% of the Costa Rican population groups responded that they have suffered from some form of discrimination, which are disclosed as Indians (2%), African descent (9%) and immigrants (9%). (EFE)
