After more than two million people voted in a symbolic independence referendum in favor of secession, Catalonia is considering separating itself from Spain just like Scotland did recently.

Artur Mas, head of the Catalan regional government, called the vote “a total success,” after the overwhelming majority supported independence.

“The people of Catalonia have made it very clear that we want to govern ourselves. It is an old aspiration, which dates back centuries and remains perfectly alive,” he said.

According to the Catalan government, on Monday, a total of 2.3 million people voted, and the vast majority, 80.7 percent, voted for independence.

Anti-independence groups boycotted the referendum, which organizers said, could have skewed the results towards succession.

The regional government said 5.4 million Catalans and resident foreigners age 16 and above were eligible to vote, but there was no official electoral roll.

The next step, Mas said, was to get an official vote.

“We deserve to vote in a legal and binding referendum and this is what we are going to try to do,” he added.

Catalonia is one of Spain’s  autonomous communities and includes Barcelona, Spain’s second largest city.

But does Catalans have a chance of peaceful secession? Dartmouth professor Jason Sorens think they can if they implement good strategy and game theory.

Benswann.com’s Joshua Cook interviews Sorens about his take on the secession movement in Spain and his book, Secessionism: Identity, Interest, and Strategy.
