Analysing Spain’s transition to democracy


ALMERIA once more hosted the International Conference on the Spanish Transition.
The two-yearly event had to be cancelled in 2013 owing to the economic crisis but was again held at the UNED (Open University) centre in Almeria City, and ended today, Thursday June 18.
This year’s edition of the biennial focused on Spain’s public institutions during the period following the death of the dictator Francisco Franco in 1975 and the transition to democracy.
“Since 2005 when the conference became an international event we have previously concentrated on social movements, political parties and the media,” explained professor of contemporary history, Rafael Quirosa-Cheyrouze.
The conference was attended by representatives from 25 Spanish universities as well as six other countries including Portugal, Hungary and Italy.
