Papeles FAES Transition and Constitution: A debate on History and Memory


FAES has recently brought together an eminent group of historians and intellectuals to discuss the PSOE's draft law on Historical Memory. Its details, the concept of the initiative and its repercussions and media and political purposes. Presented in the congress last March, the proposal was vetoed by the Partido Popular government, claiming that it would mean an increase in spending. However, it seems that the new socialist government could bring it back. We replicate, with an editing, the most significant parts of that conversation between Jordi Canal, Rafael Arias-Salgado, Joaquín Leguina, Pedro Corral, Javier Zarzalejos, Manuel Álvarez Tardío and Julius Ruiz.
