Recently, Sujit Choudhry in conjunction with other legal scholars composed an open letter addressing the governments of both Spain and Catalonia. The letter was created in hopes to encourage dialogue between the two entities about their selected constitutional laws. The people of Catalan wish to secede from Spain, and it is believed that such a discussion will make the wishes of the people known and also give all involved parties an idea of Catalan’s intentions. The letter is designed to help incite peaceful dialogue that will benefit everyone involved.
The letter is a way to help protect the interests of both parties while simultaneously protecting the European Union. Spain has unfortunately resorted to aggressive tactics to prevent a referendum to move Catalan further towards a state of independence. Earlier, Catalonian President Puidgdemont postponed the declaration of independence to encourage further dialogue with Spain. In the meantime, Prime Minister Rajoy of Spain is using legal tactics to prevent voter turnout and to suppress the movement to secede from Spain.
