(p.36) Two The Enclaves within the Spanish State: The Autonomy Statutes
Europe or Africa?
Liverpool University Press

This chapter discusses the constitutional relationship between the enclaves and the rest of Spain, and their struggle to gain autonomy. The difficulties and the length of time which it took for the Spanish government to grant the enclaves their autonomous status suggest that it is unlikely that these towns would enjoy the same powers as other communities under the Spanish Constitution in the near future. Thus, the enclaves can continue to claim that they are discriminated against as the only Spanish citizens who are not part of an autonomous community. However, it is true that, compared to other towns of similar size elsewhere in Europe, they have a great deal more autonomy than most.
