The crisis in Catalonia could remain in European memories like yet another crisis.
But it could also be an opportunity to come back to the core values of Europe: Peace, Dialogue, Compromise, Empowerement of civil society while respecting the rule of law. In 2012, the EU got the Nobel prize for Peace. Today that could simply appear as a joke. The EU could not muddle through its "soft" power principles in emergency situations such as Syria, Ukrain, the refugee crisis...And part of it is understandable in the global difficult framework.. But why not an EU led constructive dialogue on Catalonia ?
