Undoubtedly one of the hottest topics in Catalunya is that of independence from Spain—there are those who fervently wish for such a change while others strongly oppose the notion. Questions arising from this subject include whether the new version of the Catalan Statute is right for the autonomous community in the 21st century and what would be the economic and social effects for Catalunya if it ever did win its independence.
In light of this, in April, we organised an educational forum aimed at the English-speaking foreign resident community in Barcelona with four invited speakers to talk on the subject, and a chance for the audience to ask questions and make comments.
