I'm translating a law from Spanish to English for a class and was wondering if this law ( ) is an autonomous law. I believe that it is, but wasn't sure if it was first passed by the national government and then ratified by Catalonia. Can anyone help me understand better how this law fits into the overall hierarchy of Spanish government. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

It is a Catalonian law. No doubt about that.

Indeed. You can see that in section 3, paragraph 1: "This law aplies within the territory of Catalonia...".

What is the larger context in Spain? Dec 6, 2015

Thank you - yes I see that is applied to Catalonia. However, I'm curious as to whether this is just an autonomous law or is part of a larger law that the State government of Spain has issued, i.e. is this the Catalonian approval of a larger context. The specifics are geared toward Catalonian citizens, but I'm curious as to where this fits in the larger part of Spanish law.

Autonomía Dec 7, 2015

Hello Jim.

This law is an autonomic one:

"el Parlamento de Cataluña ha aprobado y yo,
en nombre del Rey y de acuerdo con lo que establece el artículo 65 del Estatuto de
autonomía de Cataluña, promulgo la siguiente Ley 11/2014 erradicar la homofobia, la bifobia y la transfobia".

So it's only applicable in Catalonia.

Here I paste an article where they demand a similar law for Spain as a whole:

I hope this helps!

Have a nice week.
