Recognized and valued diversity

The existence of different visions and ways of perceiving the world, life and human existence, including the concept of one’s own identity and belonging, the ways of being, feeling, thinking, living and interacting, create diverse clusters for their country or region of origin or for their characteristics (ethnic and cultural, gender, sexual, age, religious, ideological, social, economic, political and capacity, among others).

The recognition and appreciation of diversity represent both its legal and social recognition as subjects with rights as well as true opportunities to exercise them. In the same way, all persons should have the possibility of accessing the mechanisms, resources and practices that allow them to demand their compliance and protection without discrimination with a differential approach, especially with respect to the vulnerability in which some of them live. This includes affirmative actions and the implementation of a non-discriminatory culture and institutional practices.
