Luk van Langenhove comments on Catalonia crisis

    Luk van Langenhove argues that pro-secession Catalonians may not have considered the economic consequences of leaving Spain.

    Moreover, he argues, "at this moment, there are no reasons to believe that any European Union member-state, or any other state for that matter, will ever recognise Catalonia [as an independent nation-state]," a prerequisite for Catalan secession to succeed in the long run.
