This article proposes an analysis of the present time history in Catalonia and the Basque country, trying to explain more precisely the reasons of divergent trajectories, of radicalization of nationalism on the one hand, and of pacification and exit from violence on the other hand. Indeed, in spite of a similar macro-economic context dominated by the effects of the Great Recession after 2008, the unprecedented rise of the pro-independence movement in Catalonia did not find any equivalent in the Basque country. On the basis of the analysis of the main characteristics of catalan and basque nationalisms, as well as of the main changes in the last fifteen years, this article insists on the importance of a set of economical, institutional, cultural, historical and political factors.
