Ignasi Ribó (Barcelona, 1971) is a Catalan writer, the author of five novels, a theatre play (Prize Joan Santamaria) and a book on literary theory.

At a time when Catalonia, Scotland, Quebec and other small nations may be about to achieve their independence, the Catalan author Ignasi Ribó presents a new and revolutionary theory of the nation. In Habitat: The Ecopolitical Nation, he shows that there is a real alternative to the model of the nation-state and to the modern project of building increasingly larger states.
