If you have seen Pan’s Labyrinth, then you might understand some trepidation at the thought of meeting Sergi López.

In fact, he has a large grin and buoyant air often […]

LSE Review of Books blog post: Diversity Management in Spain
The book is not only topical, but it also highlights a dimension, which is seldom forgotten yet central to effectively dealing with diversity: namely, that immigration is a central dimension of diversity but not the only one, and local “autochthonous” or historical languages and identities also need to be addressed in debates about integration and diversity management. Verena Wisthaler gives […]

Spain should follow the UK, France and the United States in embracing evidence based social innovation: a EUROPP blog post.
Spain still lags far behind other developed countries in the area of public policy evaluation.

David Casado […]

The symbolism in Spanish football illustrates that Catalan and Spanish identities are not necessarily incompatible: a EUROPP blog post
By and large, Catalans are more fluent in their multiple identities (Catalan, Spanish and European), more generous when asked about solidarity with other Spanish autonomous communities, and more willing to keep the current constitutional system than is indicated by the discourse of most Catalan political parties and media. Nonetheless, it is also undeniable that, in recent times, support for an independent Catalan […]

Spanish newspaper coverage of the German elections: a EUROPP blog post.
The German general election of 22 September 2013 was closely followed in Spain.
