Which social, political, cultural and both national and international phenomena define Spain as it enters the 3rd decade of the 21st century? To answer this question, this course aims to analyze, debate and understand the challenges which Spain faces in the context of a globalized world: the government model and its monarchy, peripheral and centralist nationalism, its linguistic and cultural diversity, migratory movements in search of the European dream, along with other hot topics such as the effectiveness of the educational system, the health system, gender issues, politics of historic memory or the change of the model of production which will be greatly affected by the effects of climatic change on the Iberian peninsula.
