The Spanish Region of Galicia make use of the possibilities available. Although Galicia possesses a rich history and shows a strong trend of individualization, currently it is a part of democratic Spain, which provides Galicia with an appropriate representation in the European Union. Thus, simultaneously, Galicia belongs to both Spain and Europe. Galicia retains its autonomous identity. The region is, however, in favour of the unity of Spain. In particular, it perceives current conditions as unfavourable for intensification of any steps towards emancipation.
