Myths and Realities of Secessionisms - A Constitutional Approach to the Catalonian Crisis


 

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the Catalonian crisis in Spain from a historical, political and legal perspective. Using the precedents of Québec, Scotland, and partially Veneto and Bavaria, the author highlights some of the key issues of contemporary secessionist nationalism, including its relationship with sovereignty, the right to have a referendum, and the capacity of a particular territory to amend the constitution in order to admit secession.


Miguel Beltrán de Felipe is Professor of Law at the University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain. He previously served as a law clerk in the Constitutional Court of Spain, as APSA-Fulbright Congressional Fellow in the House of Representatives of the US, and as a legal counsel for the Secretary of State for Parliamentary Affairs of Spain.
