“As much as Spaniards cherish their hard-fought for constitution, it’s time to change it,” says Camino Mortera-Martinez of the Centre for European Reform think-tank. Like other specialists, she thinks the fundamental need is to update the constitution so that it gives more formal recognition to Spain’s rich regional diversity....Ms Mortera-Martinez says one awkward question is how Spain’s other regions would react if the proposals singled out Catalonia for special favour. “If Madrid makes concessions for Catalonia alone, it could upset other regions,” she says.
