Catalonia: A panel information session

Cone 210-A

In Spain, in October 2017, the regional government of Catalonia called for a referendum for independence. Days later, the Catalonian president declared independence. Those resolutions were illegal within the framework of the Spanish Constitution. The central government of Spain took measures such as shutting down the Catalan government and calling for elections in the Catalan parliament. After the election last December, with a tight result between independent and unionist parties, the confrontation is still central in Catalan politics and society.
