European Integration And Civil Society In Spain
This essay argues that, while not a causal determinant for a successful transition to democracy in Spain, the promise of EU membership helped Spain's democratization and consolidation process, partially overcoming its notorious dearth of voluntary associations. In addition, the EU also exerted significant influence on prominent segments of civil society, most notably organized labour, which helped shape the context for state-society relations.
