What theoretical and practical implications does the Catalan example have for Spain and Europe? A discussion at the Danube Institute.
The Danube Institute presents:
AUTONOMY OR SECESSION:
THE CASE OF CATALONIA IN A WIDER CONTEXT
Catalonia has enjoyed the widest autonomy in Europe and – along with South Tirol – has served as an ideal model for ethnic Hungarian initiatives in neighbouring countries. Recent developments in Catalonia, however, have caused a major setback for the cause of autonomy. What theoretical and practical implications does the Catalan example have for Spain and Europe?
To discuss these questions, the Danube Institute hosted:
• H.E. D. José Ángel López Jorrin, Ambassador of Spain to Hungary,
• Zoltán Kántor, Director of the Research Institute for Hungarian Communities Abroad (Nemzetpolitikai Kutatóintézet) and,
• Sándor Gyula Nagy, senior research fellow at the Institute of Foreign Afairs and Trade
The conference is in English.
Date: Wednesday, November 29,
Time: Registration 16:00, Conference starts at 16:30 and concludes at 18:00
Place: Danube Institute, 24 Eötvös utca, Budapest 1067
