politjobs job alert EU 2017-40 – Spain vs Catalonia – a European question
Another national uproar is shaking Europe these days: Catalonians insisted on a referendum on their independence from Spain, and took it to the streets – against massive and violent Spanish police force. Not a good picture of a tolerant Europe that scolds Turkey and other countries for their skills of dealing with dissenting opinions – on the other hand perhaps an explosion of emotions that seems long overdue and that we know in different variations. Regional minorities everywhere in Europe are increasingly using every opportunity to make their voices heard – whether Belgian Wallonia almost stops the Canada-Europe Trade Agreement or British elderly and rural citizens decide for Britain to leave the EU. How will Spain deal with it – the big question over the next days. A hard stance on Catalonia will not lead to reconciliation, so talks and negotiations will be necessary – and a willingness on both sides to understand.
How will Europe deal with it – a fundamental and burning question to which we still do not have an answer. Europe’s minorities have a geographic, cultural, demographic or gender dimension, and many more. Talks and negotiations are necessary as well – not in a business-as-usual manner but with the sincere goal to understand each other and to build a Europe in which everyone has a place.
