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.

The CatDem Foundation wants to make its contribution to this process by driving ideas to debates and propositions. This is open to the whole Catalan society with an acquired compromise with the essential values of catalanism and democracy; a debate that goes beyond the strictly political and partisan fragmentations. Basically, the Foundation offers a broader space – what we call Casa Gran – which opens to dialogue, participation and creativity; counting with professionals, intellectuals and technicians coming from different traditions of catalanism.
