One of the intentions of the EU’s constitutional convention was, allegedly, to stimulate interest in the EU’s evolution among its ‘citizens’. Here’s how it’s going in Spain:
“A recent survey by Real Instituto Elcano, a Madrid-based foreign affairs think-tank, found only 1 per cent of Spaniards knew the goal of the convention was to write a constitution. A full 90 per cent of the respondents in the survey had never even heard of the convention.”
