In 2020, the tenth season of a political called The Process was released, which is a TV show with villains, heroes, twists, and cliffhangers. Many Catalans feel that show properly reflects the conflict in Spain, which began in 2010. Morales will discuss how the referendum from Catalonian independence, held on October 1, 2017, was probably the most important act of civil disobedience in the history of Europe. Further, he will discuss the goals of the referendum and the nature and horizon of democracy in Spain, such as the origins of the conflict and present policy options.
