Prensa New stage in the EU: politics is back

The EU is still a great political project that has to be strengthened in political, economic and strategic terms. Around this axis the conversation flows among the FAES Head, Javier Zarzalejos, the former Foreign Affairs Minister Ana Palacio, and the ESADE professor José María de Areilza about the new stage in the EU, in which politics are going to weigh more than law, and which implies an opportunity that Spain must take advantage.

Prensa The independentist fiction in Catalonia

The only fault resides in a Catalan independentism that is featured by the institutional and constitutional disloyalty, as well as by the systematic incompliance with the democratic lawfulness. And the ones who are in jail are there ─the justice will have the last say─ as a consequence of their faulty acts. Illegal and antidemocratic.

Prensa Brexit out of control

Brexit seems to have acquired a life of its own and feeds on the deep disagreement between the political forces, the internal division, the lack of leadership and the territorial gap. The problem is not Brussels but the political debacle that the Brexit has triggered.

Prensa The new Cuban Constitution: the petrification of the garrison State

Those who hoped that the new Magna Carta would open spaces for democratic transition will be greatly disappointed, because it maintains the communist rhetoric and gear of the dictatorship. Since international observers are not allowed, we already know beforehand what the result of the constitutional referendum.

Prensa Bolivia’s spurious primary elections

The attempt to consolidate authoritarianism in Bolivia is entering its final phase. The Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan cases are sufficient evidence for Bolivians to opt for a timely exit, before Evo Morales ends up extinguishing the remnants of democracy and freedom that remain in the country.

Prensa Elections and Lessons in Quebec

“Quebec is poorer and has less power within the Canadian context. The most tangible result of Quebec?s pro-independent movement has been the weakening of Quebec” “In Canada the right to decide does not exist; neither the right to secession, and certainly not the right to a unilateral secession” “Most Quebeckers do not want independence, they feel both Quebecker and Canadian and they do not want a third referendum” “The clarity policy has been effective and a new referendum in Quebec will take decades before it becomes feasible. Therefore, it is expected that the clarity policy will also be useful to inspire people who imitate PQ?s policies in other places”

Prensa Ante el desafío. El referéndum ilegal de Ibarretxe

La decisión de Juan José Ibarretxe, presidente del Gobierno vasco, de promover un referéndum ilegal el 25 de octubre del próximo año debería servir, al menos, para devolver a la realidad a todos los que han querido vivir instalados en la alucinación buenista, encabezados por el presidente del Gobierno de la nación, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero. Y esa realidad, que cualquier Gobierno responsable debería afrontar, es la de una crisis institucional y de la estructura territorial del Estado sin precedentes en la trayectoria democrática de España. Una crisis que no sólo afecta al funcionamiento del Estado, sino que tiene como primera víctima a la propia legitimidad democrática del régimen constitucional.
