The aim of the topic is the scientific and analytical treatment of European Union (EU) legal documents and their harmonization in the field of civil rights. This research article explains the cultural diversity in EU countries and the difficulties that court decisions have in dealing with individuals’ cases coming from countries outside the EU. As an example, we took the orders of the courts of the EU countries (Pacula, 2020) with special emphasis on Spanish and Moroccan citizens living in Spain (Mehdi, 2008), their problems with the law in force, and with respect to international standards. Our findings show that emigration to EU countries of citizens from countries outside the EU, among other things, also shows the existence of cultural differentiation. Whereas diversity is about the different cultural unification of the individual, it has a reluctance to accept these differentiations. Regarding mass immigration to EU countries, the guarantee and provision of basic rights and freedoms must be done through the harmonization of legal norms that are also related to the needs of multinational corporations for the workforce. The recognition and acceptance of the external judicial decision would also make possible the factual and legal acceptance of the existence of cultural diversity.
