Europe has made the circular economy one of its political priorities and Spain is committed to moving in this direction. This FAES Paper gathers reflections and recommendations on the challenges and opportunities that underlie this paradigm shift.
The energy changeover is a change of model of a greater depth and scope than any of the ones proposed to date and will require a rigorous decision-making process that combines technical stringency, political consensus, regulatory accuracy and the involvement of stakeholders.
The Constitution became the key with which Spain gained access to a new reality. This study integrates four essays that underline its value from four different perspectives: institutional quality, reconciliation agreement, Constitution and Europe, and the referential value of the Transition in Latin America.
Without a common strategy, the Alliance will gradually face away. Its survival is only possible through US leadership, a new Strategic Concept and a return to defence investment.
Seventy years after its creation, the Atlantic Alliance is weaker. Can we accept this NATO as the new normal? Is it an acceptable result of adapting to a new period? Should we not aspire to a better Alliance? Does NATO's existence in 2019 really make sense?

"There were two options: a great constitutional agreement or a great radical agreement that includes communists and independentists. Everything seems that the worst possible formula has been chosen, and that will have very serious consequences from a constitutional, economic and social point of view”.
With the backdrop of an accelerating economic slowdown, the curtain has been raised for us to see the spectacle of two politicians paired by their ambition and weakness. They star in a play between entanglement and drama. What has little mystery is the outcome. It will end badly, even if not soon.
