Catalonia’s Project at a Crossroad: Spain, the EU or Beyond? A conversation between Prof. Unger and Artur Mas, 129th President of Catalonia (2010-2016)

March 3, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:45 pm

Catalonia is the most northeastern region in Spain. Its capital and largest city is Barcelona. Bordering with France and the Mediterranean Sea, Catalonia enjoys a privileged, strategic position in Europe that has allowed it to economically and socially thrive.

Just like Scotland, Catalonia is a nation with a distinctive identity, language, culture and institutions. Today it finds itself at a historic crossroad. After several decades trying to find a better fit within Spain, Catalonia’s territorial and political arrangement has been deemed unsatisfactory by many. Catalans are now asking for their right to self-determination.

Mr. Artur Mas, 129th president of Catalonia (2010-2016), is coming to Harvard Law School to participate in a discussion with Prof. Roberto Mangabeira Unger about Catalonia’s new political project.
