Catalan: Fundació Catalanista i Demòcrata (CatDem)
The Catalanist and Democrat Foundation (CatDem) has assumed the challenge of impelling the restructuration process of Catalanism. The contemporary world as it is, raises a whole new set of important challenges, to which the Catalanist thought has to be capable of giving adequate answers; for example, to the consequences of globalisation; to the increasing and unceasable diversity and pluralism that describe developed societies from a social, cultural, linguistic and religious point of view; to the emergence of new technologies and the impact of those in areas such as education or economy; the demand for new policies to face emerging needs; to the new geopolitical coordinates; to the new economic interdependency; to the regeneration of democracy; to the role of States and the distribution of sovereignty and political power in this new context. To sum up, Catalanism has to be competent enough so to provide some answers to anything that conditions economic development and the wellbeing of the citizenship.

In order to structure the debates in an efficient way, the Foundation constituted three big areas of reflection and six work commissions. The objective is, from now on, to focus on the participation and contribution of more than a hundred people coming from the social, intellectual and academic world of Catalonia. The reflection areas have the objective of rethinking catalanism from the point of view of ideas. The work commissions offer the adequate framework to define concrete propositions and projects on more specific questions.[1]
