Catalan Independence: Rule of Law Versus Right to Decide
14 novembre @ 19:00 - 20:30
Catalonia will try to hold an independence referendum on October 1, which the Spanish government claims is illegal. What are the political and moral issues at stake in this confrontation between consent- and law-based accounts of legitimate rule?
Professor Jason Sorens will be speaking on the topic of secessionism and the Catalan Independence referendum.
Jason Sorens is a lecturer in the Department of Government and Program Director of the Political Economy Project at Dartmouth College. He received his Ph.D. in political science from Yale University.
This talk is being held in collaboration with the Research Group on Constitutional Studies at McGill, and will take place in the Bronfman Building, Room 46.
