    The Social Observatory of the ”la Caixa” Foundation is a space for analysis, debate and reflection that aims to study the state of society and the challenges facing it today and to spread knowledge of the social sciences and humanities, with special emphasis on the areas in which the ”la Caixa” Foundation is involved, such as social action, education, science and culture.


    The Social Observatory seeks to generate rigorous and up-to-the-minute knowledge of the society in which we live and to disseminate it in order to enrich public debate. Without question this is valuable knowledge with a scientific base that we believe helps to forge a more open and global society.


    The Social Observatory supports research and reflection with the goal of becoming a reference point for the dissemination of relevant and current knowledge and making it more accessible to all segments of society, as a way of contributing to the progress of the reality that surrounds us. With this vocation, it shares the content that it generates through different formats from publications to activities in CaixaForum Macaya and the rest of the CaixaForum centres.
