‘¿Smart State?’ article in El Pais (Spanish newspaper) special edition Urban Beings/Seres Urbanos

Here is the first article of the collection ‘Seres Urbanos/Urban Beings’ in the Planeta Futuro/Future Planet in El Pais newspaper: ‘Smart State?’.

The article aims to shed some light on the consequences that urban transformations are causing the the re-scalling processes in nation-states. Indeed, the article argues that Spain as a nation-state should embrace devolution and the right to decide as the way to become a smart state. In addition, the article aims to point out the paradox by which Spanish cities are addressing the Smart City paradigm whereas the ‘big picture’ that how the nation-state should evolve is not easily foreseen.
