Amnesty International published the The State of the World's Human Rights 2014-15 in February 2015.

In the section for Spain it reported that throughout the year thousands of demonstrations were organized to protest against austerity measures imposed by the government. Reports of abuses by police against demonstrators continued. Thousands of migrants, including asylum-seekers and refugees, some fleeing from Syria, attempted to irregularly enter the Spanish enclave cities of Ceuta and Melilla from Morocco. Reports of unlawful deportations and excessive use of force by Spanish border guards persisted.
