"População e Sociedade" no. 40

A new issue of CEPESEs journal has just been released. In its 40th issue, "Population and Society" includes a thematic dossier dedicated to the theme “Portugal-Galicia Relations. Regional Perspectives on Transformation”, coordinated by Celso Cancela Outeda, Judite Gonçalves de Freitas and Diogo Ferreira.

This issue aims to present the different aspects of the transnational dynamics of relations between Portugal and Galicia, in the past and present, at a time when it is necessary to promote a joint reflection on the basis of relationships between these communities (Portuguese and Galician) which, due to the proximity of their political, economic and cultural characteristics and geographic contiguity, are in a position to reinforce cooperation in crucial sectors for their consolidated and reciprocal development. In fact, “the brotherhood that exists between Galicia and Portugal is a deeply rooted popular idea that has been used and proclaimed by writers and poets” (Ramon Villares) and politically consecrated by the European Union, calling it the Euro-Region Galicia-North of Portugal , recognizing that it is a territory that tends to converge or, at least, to admit a mutual perspective.

The Varia section presents four articles. One on maritime law to be respected on board ships; another about the environmental disaster that led to the formation of a migratory network (the case of Longarone and Urussanga); one that analyzes food and nutritional security policies in the countries of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries; and, finally, a work on journalism in the Macaronesia (Canaries, Madeira, Azores and Cape Verde) in Iberian news systems.
