Lecture on "An update on Catalonia" by Dr. Joaquin Roy, Director, European Union Center and Jean Monnet Chair, University of Miami.

Catalonia's declaration of independence may be over for now, but the respective positions between Spain's central government and the Catalan leadership, and the divided citizenry in the region, appear irreconcilable. The conflict could escalate if there is resistance to Spanish direct rule, and Madrid has called for regional elections in December. Prof. Roy, Jean Monnet Chair at the University of Miami, will provide an update on the rise of those tensions, and the latest developments surrounding the conflict.
