A Second Transition, or More of the Same? Spanish Foreign Policy under Zapatero

South European Society and Politics, Vol. 14, 4, December 2009, (pp. 519-536).

This text explores the extent to which José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero’s foreign policy during his first term (2004–8) as prime minister should be seen primarily as a reaction to (and a rejection of) that of his immediate predecessor, José María Aznar, or whether it is best interpreted as an original, proactive response to changing domestic and international circumstances. It concludes that, although Zapatero’s administration was essentially reactive at first, it gradually acquired some unexpected, novel traits of its own, which contributed fresh ideas to the debate over Spain’s foreign policy identity and its role in an increasingly globalised world.

La fine del sorpasso spagnolo

La Spagna in situazione critica. La crisi non solo rimette in discussione il modello socioeconomico su cui si e fondato il boom del paese, ma getta ombre anche sulla stabilità del sistema político. La fragilità parlamentare del governo Zapatero e il sistema delle autonomie impediscono quelle riforme strutturali di cui il paese avrebbe bisogno.
