Carlos Puigdemont will speak at a Derry council meeting this week.
Former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont MEP will address a meeting of Derry City and Strabane District Council on Tuesday.
In October 2017, an independence referendum was held in Catalonia.
A vast of those voted were in favour of the region declaring independence from Spain.
However, the turnout in the referendum was only 43%.
The Spanish government declared the poll and dissolved the Catalan parliament.
Since 2017, Mr Puigdemont and other Catalan ministers have been living in self-imposed exile in Belgium.
They are wanted in Spain on rebellion charges.
Mr Puigdemont has been invited to speak remotely to a meeting of the local council this week following a motion in 2019 by People Before Profit councillor Eamonn McCann.
He will speak at a meeting of the council's Governance and Strategic Planning committee on Tuesday at 4pm.
