independence but a certain autonomy, along with the restoration of rights and institutions and Catalan as the official language( only in Catalonia of course). With the crisis of the Restauration(1902-1931) and as a consequence of the disaster of the 98, nationalistic political parties gained strength and increased their social roots and electoral influence. Thus arose “Lliga Regionalista” . Thanks to it, Catalan nationalism gained importance and in 1913 was created the “Manconmunidad de Cataluna”(community of Catalonia), making the Lliga the most important Catalan nationalist party With the Spanish Civil War(1933-1939) and Franco’s dictatorial regimen(1939-1978), every type of nationalism was repressed. Nevertheless, during the Spanish Transition(1975-1982) la “Generalitat de Catalunya’’ was introduced, making of Catalonia an autonomy within Spain and elections were won by Jordi Pujol. ( El Nacionalismo Catalán a lo Largo de la Historia , Europa Digital, 2018) In the last years, Catalan nationalism has been very active fighting for independence resulting in severe political, social and economical inestability. In a referendum done in October 2017, declared unlawful by Spain's Constitutional Court, about ninety% of Catalan citizens sponsored independence. But turnout was only 43%.

As a reaction ,Madrid imposed an instantaneous rule invoking Article one hundred fifty five of the Constitution( a first for Spain.) (Catalonia crisis in 300 words, BBC News , October 2019)The Spanish authorities dismissed the Catalan leaders, dissolved the parliament and called local elections on 21 December 2017, which the nationalist parties won. Carles Puigdemont, the former Catalan president, is now wanted in Spain for insurrection. ( Catalonia crisis in 300 words , BBC News, October 2019) In June 2018, Catalan nationalists regained manage of the region after new authorities were instituted. Quim Torra, a close ally of Mr Puigdemont, now heads the local government.( Catalonia crisis in 300 words , BBC News, October 2019).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
