Debate Elcano 29: 'Brexit y sus posibles consecuencias para España y Europa'

Una vez que el Reino Unido ha abandonado la UE se abre un periodo transitorio hasta el 31 de diciembre de 2020 en el que se debe negociar la relación futura entre británicos y europeos. Se trata de la parte más importante del proceso del Brexit. Y el acuerdo no será fácil. En este debate se analizaron los pros y contras de los distintos modelos de relación futura, los intereses y estrategias negociadoras de ambas partes y el impacto económico y geopolítico del Brexit a medio y largo plazo tanto para la UE como para España.

Brexit: el fin del principio

‘Aunque todavía no sepamos cómo será la relación definitiva entre Londres y Bruselas, debemos preguntarnos por las consecuencias del Brexit para la UE’.

‘En general, la gente joven tiende a no ser consciente del valor de la democracia representativa, lo cual es comprensible en la medida en que algunos de ellos tienen gran incertidumbre sobre su futuro’.

'La presión separtista disminuirá si el Gobierno responde a los problemas reales'

Powell no cree que el problema del independentismo se solucione con una reforma de la Constitución, ya que ni existe un consenso para ello ni es lo que reclaman los partidos independentistas.
‘Ninguna reforma constitucional va a satisfacer a los separatistas, porque no quieren formar parte de este Estado, y es irrelevante’.

'The Transition to Democracy in Spain and Czechia/Czechoslovakia'

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution and the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Czech Republic and Spain, the Vaclav Havel Library, the Embassy of Spain in Prague and the Cervantes Institute organized a lively debate on the transitions to democracy in Spain and Czechia/Czechoslovakia. The speakers were the Director of Havel Library, Mr. Michael Zantovský, and Dr. Charles Powell, a historian of contemporary Spain who is also Director of the Elcano Royal Institute.

'Global Europe: Challenges and Opportunities: The View from Madrid'

As a global actor, the European Union faces major challenges and opportunities. In his address to the IIEA, Dr Powell explored the Union’s role in an increasingly volatile and unpredictable world, in which the survival of the rules-based international order that has served Europe so well can no longer be taken for granted. In particular, he examined how the EU should respond to the growing US-China rivalry, the future of the transatlantic relationship, and the debate over ‘strategic autonomy’. Dr Powell also reviewed Spain’s contribution to the EU’s efforts to establish itself as a relevant and credible global actor.

Visit to Vilnius (Latvia)

In the afternoon, he lectured on ‘The future of the European Union: a Spanish perspective’ at the Institute for International Relations and Political Science of Vilnius University, where he was hosted by its director, Dr. Margarita Šešelgytė.
