Introduction

The book you have in your hands is based on the four core axes that define, and will explain, the speech and the practice of the Basque politics onwards: the Spanish Constitutional Change, the Self-Government, the Right to Decide and the Independence. This project, which is intended to be a constructive and transformative contribution, builds bridges: on the one hand, between different political sensitivities, and on the other hand, in order to join policy-makers and the academics together. Building bridges is the DNA of the Basque Political Innovation paradigm. It is focused on building bridges, walking a mile in someone else's shoes, understanding each other, feeling each other. In a nutshell, working together for the Basque society. In the Basque Country, that means seeking the political empathy driven by transformational empowered citizenship. Indeed, the political future is built today, by all of us: having a look into each other's eyes, pushing forward.
