People imagine and believe in ethnic communities and nation states, but today others think it is a mistake to confine citizenship to ethnic communities and, ultimately, states. My talk deals the first dimension, although I refer it in one case: non-radical Basque’s ideology, in Spain. The PNV (National Basque Party) is supporting that the Basque People or Euskal Herria (the Basque name for the Basque Country) are a people with their own identity among the peoples of Europe, a repository of unique historical, social and cultural heritage, which is geographically settled in seven territories.
