Abstract:

Support for independence in Catalonia has increased rapidly over the past decade. This dynamic is the result of Catalans in political, economic, and academic fields who no longer believe that the necessary reform of Spanish government is a viable option in terms of achieving an acceptable arrangement for Catalonia to stay within the Spanish state. Rejecting assimilation on the basis that a uninational state is unworkable for a host of structural reasons, secession is viewed as the preferred choice for the betterment of the region & rsquo;s people. Disdain, Distrust and Dissolution dissects the problems of the relationship between Catalonia and Spain. The author investigates the dynamics of conflict between opposing groups, the resulting effects on inter-territorial distrust, and the impact on the functioning of the Spanish state as a whole. The overwhelming conclusion is that the accumulation of mutual distrust between the opposing parties is a major obstacle to the functioning of the Spanish state. Mutual perception of unfairness and lack of trust is an impediment to the design and functioning of future shared projects & mdash;and without agreement and engagement there is no benefit to either party, to the detriment of Spain and its peoples.
