Spanish study profiles British population in Andalucía

Costa Almería News, 26 | 06 | 2009 - Noticia

Costa Almería News was one of the principal sources of data for the study

A STUDY of the way British residents in Andalusia view their adopted home was published last week

The study, entitled Observando a los nuevos vecinos (Observing the new neighbours), was drawn up by the centre for Andalusian studies and analyses the opinions British citizens living in Almería and Málaga have of Andalucía.

The data was collected by a team of four from the University of Almería (UAL) headed by José Francisco Fernández.

To gather the data the UAL team concentrated on newspapers printed in Almería and Málaga during a six month period in 2008 and studied a wide range of articles including news items, opinion pieces and letters pages.

José Ramon Ibáñez, who formed part of the UAL team, recognised that Costa Almería News had been one of the principal sources of information and the report’s bibliography lists eight CAN articles written by Richard Torné and Matthew Pritchard that were analysed as part of the study.

The report concludes British people generally have a positive attitude towards Andalucía. It highlights the use of words such as ‘good-hearted’ and ‘friendly’ as being commonly used by Britons to describe Andalusian people and draws attention to other comments made on the excellence of the climate, landscape and gastronomy.

Other sections of the study are dedicated to more controversial topics. One examines the opinion Britons have of themselves within the Andalusian community. It explores why Britons choose to describe themselves as expats and show a marked aversion to the term ‘immigrant’. Another section details the main problems that worry British people, such as environmental issues and illegal builds.

A final section deals with the case of the Priors (who had their house demolished in January 2008) and the effect this had on British opinions towards Andalucía.

Another member of the UAL team, María Elena García Sánchez, described what she hoped the study would achieve. She said: “The main purpose of this study is that Andalusian people and Britons get to know each other better.”
