Prensa FAES, 30 years at the service of Spain  

FAES has celebrated its 30th anniversary surrounded by the friends who have made it possible, by its patrons and by many of those who collaborate with it and share the principles of defence of Spain, constitutional order and liberal democracy. To all of them, our special thanks.

Prensa “An alliance of constitutional parties would be the most desirable, but it cannot be headed by the one who is doing the counter-alliance”

"We are vertiginously going to a crisis of the constitutional system with devastating consequences and the Spaniards have to know it. The crisis of the Transition system, of the constitutional system, means the disintegration of the system"

Prensa Chile: democratic response to social explosion

The violence has led Chile to a climate of ungovernability under which lies the intention to undermine the foundations of the Republic by demanding a Constituent Assembly. The ruling party seeks to make possible a new social pact with broad citizen participation, but the 'ball' is in the court of the left.

Prensa After 10N

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.

Prensa Brexit and parliamentary democracy in the UK

A broad analysis of Brexit should include three interconnected dimensions: a crisis of a legal-constitutional nature, a crisis of parties and political representativeness, and a third socio-economic dimension. Thus, the British are facing a process of constitutional readjustment that aligns their institutions with a different political, economic and cultural reality; and they are doing so in an intense debate, exposed to the light and inelegant.

Prensa The Spanish Constitution. Four perspectives on its 40th anniversary

Prensa Transition and Constitution: A debate on History and Memory

FAES has recently brought together an eminent group of historians and intellectuals to discuss the PSOE's draft law on Historical Memory. Its details, the concept of the initiative and its repercussions and media and political purposes. Presented in the congress last March, the proposal was vetoed by the Partido Popular government, claiming that it would mean an increase in spending. However, it seems that the new socialist government could bring it back. We replicate, with an editing, the most significant parts of that conversation.

Prensa Memory and forgetfulness of reconcilitian

The PSOE's proposal of law to amend the so-called' “Ley de memoria histórica” is his ace up their sleeves that the Socialists are saving to respond to the intentions of Podemos in their quest to snatch the 'anti-Franco' flag from them. The journalist Pedro Corral, a PP councilor in Madrid, describes the proposal as "absolutely shattering", and argues in these FAES Papers that it is "the last burden to sweep away the constitutional system".

Prensa The Statute of Catalonia: Equally Unconstitutional, But More Confusing

Catalan nationalism has acquired a leading role since the last general elections because of the prominent position that the Spanish Government has given the movement, in spite of the number of seats it actually won.
