Title: It’s the Economy, Stupid! Or is it just the Elites? Explaining the Success of Regional Nationalism in Spain

My Project seeks to explain variations in public opinion among different regions in the same country. My research is on regional nationalist movements in Spain. I use analyses of time series of survey data and of coded parliamentary speeches, panel data, and experiments to explain why such movements have been more strongly supported by public opinion in two regions, Catalonia and the Basque Country, than in two other culturally-distinct regions, Galicia and Valencia.
