Sujit Chudhry, among other constitutional law scholars, wrote an open letter to the Catalan and Spanish governments concerning the current crisis in Catalonia. San Francisco’s Patch wrote that Chudhry and other scholars hope that the letter will foster an open-minded discussion about the issues at hand. They implore President Puigdemont of Catalonia to assume a steadfast commitment to organize a referendum in order to ascertain the desires of the Catalan people. The scholars also advise Spain’s Prime Minister, Rajoy, to accept Catalan’s secession as a fact and not supress their ability to express their desires.

In the letter, co-authored by Sujit Choudhry, it is stated that the interests of Catalonia and Spain as well as those neighboring them will be secured only by a peaceful termination of the dispute. Without a peaceful agreement, the basic ideals of the European Union itself will be undermined. The authors assert that Spain’s actions on 1st October 2017 were derailing to an agreeable settlement. Puigdemont’s postponement of the referendum to dialogue with Spain corrected the situation, which could have gone much worse.   Additional article to read on constitutionaltransitions.org.

According to the article by Angela Stevens, it is still unclear whether the people of Catalonia want to secede or not, as some members of the population have expressed resistance against secession. The scholars affirm that the Spanish government went to extreme ends to subdue voter turnout in the attempted referendum, a wrong move. However, they also stress that contrary to what happened, it is not the prerogative of the Catalan government to decide whether secession is the direction but rather one of the Catalan people. As such, Prime Minister Rajoy needs to take a step back. The Puigdemont government also needs to give up insisting that the Catalans definitively want a secession. In the letter Sujit Choudhry and the other scholars state that there is a lot to consider than just the majority. The Catalonian people may be open to solutions that are less drastic than secession. Catalans need to agree on what the best solution will be, a process the scholars say will be determined through democratic, just and truthful means. Additional article to read on patch.com.
