Closa: What next for Catalonia in 2018?

Written by Carlos Closa. Posted in Current opinions, Opinions

For Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, fresh regional elections at the end of 2017 were supposed to lift a cloud of political uncertainty that has shrouded Catalonia for the past six months. However, Professor Carlos Closa writes in EUI Times, the inconclusive results of those elections mean that there is no end in sight for one of Europe’s most testing political crises in recent memory.
