06 Jun PostIndependentzia > #HanIzanikHonaGara NEW book published on 23rd & 26th June 2014 in St. Sebastian, Basque Country (Spain)
On 23rd and 26th June, Dr Igor Calzada presented his new book entitled PostIndependentzia > #HanIzanikHonaGara (PostIndependence > #BeingThereWeAreHere) in ELKAR bookshop in St. Sebastian published by TransLoKal Academic Entrepreneurship for Policy Making. The book gathers some of the most relevant conclusions of his three-year research on Regional and Social Innovation Studies at the University of Oxford. The original and first edition is in Basque language.
In Europe, milestone changes are taking place in which the right for territories to decide their own future and democratic choices for devolution and independence are becoming issues. This book aims to visualize the Basque Country from the outside, from an international point of view by proposing its real choices and contradictions in a constructive, transformational and entrepreneurial manner.
And what if we were an independent country? What if, starting today, we began to think about independence the very next day and started on a plan of action? That is what PostIndependence is. To that end, the author believes that it is essential that relations with other countries and projects should be bolstered, a place that we would like in the world, to start working on a united strategic action.
- The launch event was on 23rd June at 11AM in Elkar Bookshop in St. Sebastian where it was presented the book by the author and the Basque journalist, Mariano Ferrer.
The book has been published by TranLoKal Academic Entrepreneurship for Policy Making – Ekintzailetasun Akademikoa Herrigintzarako.
