This summer the town of Nájera will once again host the International Meetings of the Middle Ages, organised by the University of Cantabria and the Local Government with co-organizers from Spain, Belgium, England, France, Italy, Portugal and Sweden.

4. Exercise of the power in the medieval cities
5. Actors of the power: oligarchies, disputes and social unrest
