The Post-Franco Party Political System in Spain: EU30569

2010-2011

Dr. Paul Kennedy
The aim of this unit is to examine the nature of Spanish politics in the post-authoritarian period; analyse the success of the transition from dictatorship to democracy; evaluate the modernisation of Spain under the PSOE government with particular reference to the role played by European integration; and assess more recent political developments under the Partido Popular and the PSOE under Rodríguez Zapatero.
On completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  • Understand the nature of the transition to democracy;

  • Critically evaluate the role played by political parties and other key actors;

  • Apply theoretical frameworks to political developments in Spain.

The core content of this unit includes: the transition from dictatorship to democracy; socio-economic modernisation under the PSOE and PP; the role of European integration; and Spain’s system of regional autonomy.

Assessment:

The assessment for this unit consists of an essay of 3,500 words (67%) to be handed in on Monday 11 May and coursework consisting of one group seminar presentation and individual write-up (33%) which is to be handed in the week after the group presentation.


Seminars:

Since the seminar contributes one third of the marks for this unit, it is essential that you follow these guidelines:



  • The mark that you receive includes both the presentation and a seminar paper;

  • The INDIVIDUAL seminar paper (maximum 1,000 words to be handed in one week after the presentation) should be a summary of your presentation in Spanish, including key information and conclusions, and include full references and a bibliography. An ESML cover sheet should also accompany it.

  • The seminar presentation in Spanish should be no more than 25 minutes in length. You can refer to notes, but do not read the seminar, as this will automatically result in a lower mark. After your presentation, you are responsible for the organisation of the remainder of the seminar in terms of a question and answer session, which will be included in the overall assessment.

  • You are expected to see your tutor for advice on your seminar plans at least one week before your seminar. Please do not wait until the day before.

  • The individual seminar write-up is to be handed in the week after the group presentation.
