Welcome

Welcome to Catalonia International, a public-private consortium that has been working since 2024 to publicize the values and assets of Catalonia to international public opinion, to give our country a voice in major global debates, to establish bonds of trust with the citizens and institutions of other countries, and to promote the training of young people and professionals in the field of international relations.

Based on the direct legacy of the Public Diplomacy Council of Catalonia - DIPLOCAT (2012), the Patronat Catalunya Món (2007) and the Patronat Català Pro Europa (1982), a pioneering entity in relations with the EU, Catalonia International has the dual mission of bringing Catalonia closer to the world and the world closer to Catalonia.

The consortial nature of Catalonia International, with a diverse and cross-cutting structure, makes it a suitable instrument of support to all civil society actors in Catalonia who wish to become involved and participate in international forums, contributing their point of view on the building of a fairer, more peaceful, more democratic and more sustainable society.

In the digital era, companies, universities, cities, local entities, social movements and the general public are increasingly playing a role in the global governance of an interconnected world. Aware of this new reality, Catalonia International brings together a wide variety of voices and deploys a wide range of tools to bring civil society and the institutions of Catalonia closer to the international sphere and thus help meet the challenges faced by Catalonia.

Fostering the image of Catalonia and creating a positive public opinion abroad directly affect the attractiveness of investments, knowledge, institutions and people, while helping to connect, create links and consolidate relations of friendship and trust with the rest of the world. Catalonia International therefore serves the country as an instrument for participation in major global debates, guaranteeing plurality and multidimensionality at all times.

In the various sections of the website you will discover in more detail how Catalonia International connects, projects and empowers to foster international dialogue.
