While both sides are partly right, the fight against impunity and corruption needs to build bridges outside the system.

Prensa José María Aznar: "What happened in Catalonia is a period in itself, a full-fledged rebellion"

José María Aznar ha afirmado hoy que “lo que ha ocurrido en Cataluña es un punto y aparte, una rebelión en toda regla. El nacionalismo ha tirado por la borda los esfuerzos de décadas de desarrollo de autogobierno, de participación en el gran proyecto nacional de vida en común que es España”. Por ello, ha asegurado, “no queda lugar para suponer buena fe en las apelaciones al diálogo, ni es posible hablar de diálogo con los que han protagonizado la rebelión”.

Prensa The coalition agreement in Germany: winners, losers and the uncertain future of Merkel

SPD and CDU-CSU reached an agreement in order to build up a Government. Critical voices in the conservative alliance has been played down by the last events: new elections would pose a threat to recently resigned Schulz's party, whilst CDU has not presented itself as a clear alternative to the Merkelian leadership. The main question is how these events will affect the long-term German party system.

Prensa Strength of Identity

Europe is in the throes of two simultaneous crises: on the one hand, it is suffering from a political crisis, a crisis of leadership, one that has led to constitutional failure; on the other, it is suffering from a loss of identity, a phenomenon that results in cultural relativism. Marcello Pera, Speaker of the Italian Senate and Professor of Philosophy of Science at the University of Pisa, delivered a conference entitled “Strength of Identity” during the course of the FAES Campus 2005, a paper which the FAES Foundation is now publishing. Also known as the co-author of the book Senza Radici (“Without Roots”) alongside Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), Professor Pera urges European culture to proudly recall and reaffirm its origins and its universal democratic principles: freedom, equality and tolerance. In this respect, Europe must recognise the intrinsic value of a civilisation, Western civilisation, that has given the world so many universal ideas. “Europe must be aware of the moral superiority of a series of values that have prevailed over centuries and that have produced beneficial results wherever they have become established”.
