Liberal Democracy in Crisis : the Spanish Case
The objective of this paper is to draw attention to the constitutional erosion that has taken place in Spain in the last years. One of the main erosions that has occurred is connected to the Catalan pro-independence bid, with illiberal traits like the disdain for the law and the Courts. The illiberal approach to democracy will be highlighted. The national government is also to be blamed for some reforms affecting the General Council for the Judiciary and for the attempts to undermine and capture counter-majoritarian institutions, designed to control and counterbalance political power.
