What theoretical and practical implications does the Catalan example have for Spain and Europe? A discussion at the Danube Institute.
The Danube Institute presents:
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 will host:
• 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.
Seats are limited, and available on a first come, first served basis.
Registration is required, please register here.
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
