The Economist’s recent report "Democracy Index 2019" situates the Spanish democracy in 18th place of the 167 countries analysed. The most valued aspects are the quality of the electoral processes and pluralism, and the least, political participation and the functioning of government. On a national level, the expert survey "Informe sobre la Democracia en España 2018" (Report on Democracy in Spain 2018) by the Fundación Alternativas rates the quality of the democracy in Spain a 5.8 out of 10, highlighting the strengths of the electoral process, civil and political rights and the increase in citizen participation and women. On the other hand, it warns about the decrease in the rights of workers and freedom of association and especially freedom of expression, and negatively values the classifications of the independence of judges, stability of governments and media respect for citizens.

The fact is that there is disparity between the analysts and citizens with respect to the evaluation of the health of the Spanish democracy, as the perception of the Spanish people about the corruption, quality of the State of Law or the behaviour of politicians is usually more pessimistic than that of the experts.

What is the perception of democracy in Spain? Which factors do its citizens value the most? Which changes should be applied to the Spanish democratic system? How can the regaining of democratic confidence be fomented in the public opinion? Ignacio Molina, principal researcher at the Real Instituto Elcano, and Juan Claudio de Ramón, diplomat and writer, will discuss some of these questions.

A debate format in which, once a month, on a Monday at 6:30 pm, leading experts analyse important issues that make up today’s social reality with the journalists Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso.

The presenters put some of the audience’s questions to the guests. Please send your suggestions to: lacuestionpalpitante@march.es
