Spain

As of June 7, 2021, no draft implementation text has been published by Spain


Procedure:

1 point

Spain organized a first round of public consultations on the directive at the end of 2019. It was a free-feedback process with no draft text or specific questions to participants. There is a lack of transparency on the number of submissions and feedback provided by different interest groups. Meeting requests sent by civil society representatives to the government have been left unanswered, while other interest groups have been able to meet with the government. Invitations to the Ministry of Culture to take part in civil society events have also been ignored.

As of June 7, 2021, Spain has yet to publish a draft implementation text and to provide meaningful opportunities for the civil society to engage in the implementation process. Most recently, there have been rumours of a Royal Decree that would give the Spanish government the power to implement the Directive without any further parliamentary deliberation. 


The poor democratic quality of the implementation process so far is worrying. The Ministry of Culture has organized a public consultation before starting the draft process, but with no guiding questions to participants, and without publishing the submissions afterwards. There is a complete lack of transparency on the number of submissions or the suggestions and concerns provided to the Ministry of Culture from different interest groups. Furthermore, no working groups or stakeholder dialogues were put in place to work on the transposition process, and requests for meetings from civil society have been ignored by the Ministry of Culture. At the same time, there have been news published in the press about meetings between the Ministry of Culture and collecting societies and other influence groups.
