Catalonia: Divisive Policies That Merge Identities

Catalonia: Divisive Policies That Merge Identities | ELS ULLS DEL MÓN | Scoop.it
Catalonia is undergoing profound changes – particularly with respect to its class boundaries and defining elements of identity – which are prompting the development of a new Catalan identity.

The Fall of 2012 will doubtless go down in the history books of Catalonia and Spain. In a global context of economic crisis and cuts to social and labour rights, unequal wealth redistribution between Spain’s regions has become a contested issue. The Spanish tax system – where income is collected and redistributed amongst regions in different proportions – has historically been the central issue for Catalan nationalistic claims...

The World from Berlin: 'EU's Catalonian headache has not disappeared' | ELS ULLS DEL MÓN | Scoop.it

Regional elections in Catalonia over the weekend left the Spanish region's push for indepedence in a state of suspended animation. A majority of voters support secession, but cannot decide which party is best equipped to govern the state.

"The people have spoken and now the situation is clearer and more complicated." That was the assessment of Artur Mas, leader of the Catalonian separatist party Convergence and Union (CiU), after the votes were counted following weekend elections in the north-eastern Spanish region. A glance at the results makes it difficult to argue...

Catalonia hosted 14.45 million foreign tourists in 2012, a 10% increase compared to 2011 | ELS ULLS DEL MÓN | Scoop.it

Barcelona (ACN).- Catalonia receives 25% of all the foreigners visiting Spain, being by far the most popular destination. 14,447,814 foreign visitors travelled to Catalonia in 2012, a 9.9% increase compared to the 2011 figures, according to a survey on Frontier Tourist Movements (Frontur), released on Tuesday by the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism.

 

Catalonia’s figure is particularly relevant compared to the Spanish average: 57,700,714 million foreign tourists visited Spain last year, a 2.7% growth compared to the previous year. The largest market sending tourists to Catalonia continues to be France. Other European countries such as the United Kingdom and Germany are increasing their share, as well as relatively new markets such as Russia and China...

Spain education plan stokes tensions with restive Catalonia

Spain education plan stokes tensions with restive Catalonia | ELS ULLS DEL MÓN | Scoop.it
BARCELONA, Spain (Reuters) - Spain's leader vowed on Friday to press on with an education reform that has fueled separatist sentiment in Catalonia, where politicians were closing on a pact that could lead to a vote on independence.

Catalan officials say the reform, which would require separate classes for students who want to be taught in Spanish, would undo decades of efforts to preserve the Catalan language. The dispute has enraged Catalans just as the two biggest forces in the local parliament attempt to strike a deal which would include a referendum on independence by 2015...

Unless Catalan parties can work together, there is a danger that Catalonia could soon become ungovernable, by Montserrat Guibernau

Unless Catalan parties can work together, there is a danger that Catalonia could soon become ungovernable, by Montserrat Guibernau | ELS ULLS DEL MÓN | Scoop.it

The issue of independence has received widespread attention in the aftermath of Sunday’s elections to the Catalan Parliament; however Catalonia is also facing significant economic problems. Montserrat Guibernau argues that pro-independence parties may be reluctant to enter into a coalition with the incumbent CiU due to the risk of being blamed for unpopular spending cuts. Nevertheless, the seriousness of the economic, social and political situation means that parties from all sides of the political spectrum should co-operate to protect the welfare of all citizens living in the region...

Catalonia closer to seceding from Spain

Catalonia closer to seceding from Spain | ELS ULLS DEL MÓN | Scoop.it

Catalan voters go to the polls this weekend in a snap election that will serve as an unofficial referendum on independence for Spain’s second-wealthiest region.

Catalonia’s election could make a bad situation in Spain even worse. Spain is still reeling from the 2008 economic crisis, with the government planning to implement to austerity measures worth more than 90 billion euros over the next two years, despite an unemployment rate of 25.8 percent. If Catalonia secedes, other regions such as the Basque region may follow, leading perhaps even to the complete disintegration of a country that has suffered three civil war in the past 150 years...

Three weeks ago I went to Glasgow. No sooner had the plane from Barcelona opened its doors and let the Prestwick mizzle fall on my flinching face than I got the exact same feeling I'd had when I visited Scotland for the first time, some 30 years earlier: that it was definitely another country.
