L'avenir du Pays Basque, quoi et comment?
Euskal Herria & Peace, within the European Union
In 2018 we are facing and celebrating the first century anniversary of Eusko Ikaskuntza/Basque Studies Society and there are many issues pending with regard to the future of Euskal Herria. One of these, in my view, is the importance of peace for us as the most relevant political and social outcome during the last decades for the Basque Country, and our will to share higher levels of sovereignty at the European Union.
Historical nations like Wales or Scotland in the UK; Wallonia and Flanders in Belgium; Bavaria and the other German Länd; the Austrian Länd; or the Basque Country, Catalonia and Galizia in Spain, do have, among many others in the whole of Europe, a key role therefore and are facing difficult legal and institutional challenges before the EU, due to their current difficulties to actively participate within all EU levels whatsoever.
