Regionalism In Galicia After Regionalisation




Regionalisation is in many cases introduced as a response to regionalist demands. Apart from the territorial accommodation of conflicting territorial identities and interests, regionalisation alters the context of regionalist politics. Based on the case of Galicia after the introduction of regional autonomy, this paper offers an empirical analysis of the consequences of regionalisation for political regionalism. It argues that regional identities and demands for autonomy are affected by the presence of a regional government and a broader process of regional institutionalisation. Moreover, it discusses the adaptations in terms of ideology, mobilisation strategy and organisation made by regionalist parties and other political parties in the region, and in which ways the role of regionalism in regional politics changes after regionalisation.
