CataloniAdiós: What's next?

On the 1st of October, Catalonia voted in a referendum on its independence. This vote has been declared illegal by the Spanish Constitutional Court, riot police have been dispatched both on, before, and after the day of the vote, and the high court has started an investigation into the heads of the movement.

Nevertheless, the Catalan regional government is determined to press on. As the leader of the autonomous province, Carles Puigdemont told the BBC in the first interview since the vote on Sunday, his government is set to declare independence “at the end of this week or the beginning of next"

Acting swiftly, EPU has gathered several experts to share their insight on the topic. We will be joined by Dr. Asanga Welikala, Professor of Constitutional Law, and Daniel Cetra, a researcher on nationalism and independence movements who is writing his currently working on his PhD on Catalonia, with other panelists to be announced.
