Through cooperation agreements the Spanish Government grants recognition to the different funeral rites practiced by different religious minority groups. These same agreements also recognise the right of these religious minorities to create their own denominational plots within municipal cemeteries and guarantee the observation of their funeral practices. In our article, we compare the funeral practice and management of Barcelona’s Muslim and Jewish communities. Based on a qualitative approach, and by using different arguments, including the theory of resource mobilisation, we attempt to explain the similarities and differences in the results and the negotiating capacity of both religious communities.
