Spanish Politics


Fully booked

The course aims at making students familiar with the main features of the Spanish political system, its problems and its evolutionary trends. We will see how Spain is organized politically; how Spanish people vote; the country’s relationship with the European Union; and who are its main political actors. Also, it will focus on providing students with the analytical tools necessary to examine the different elements of the Catalan political system, paying special attention to the transformation that it has undergone in the past few years, not only regarding the different profiles of Catalan society, but also its political culture and electoral behaviour. 

The students will have the unique opportunity to visit the Parlament of Catalonia, in order to learn firsthand how it works and how is the day to day of Spanish politics.
