In this installment of our new video interview series at I-CONnect, I interview Benito Aláez Corral on developments in Spanish constitutional law.
In the interview, we explore the constitutional implications of secession, the tension between realizing the promise of socio-economic rights and the increasing financial pressures on the state, the role of Parliament in addressing these and other challenges in Spain, as well as the viability of formal constitutional amendment under the Spanish Constitution.
Benito Aláez Corral is a Professor of Public Law at the University of Oviedo in Spain, where he writes on subjects in constitutional law, including constitutional theory, human rights and constitutional amendment. He holds degrees from the University of Oviedo and Ruhr University Bochum.
