Abstract:

Spain is a nation which only until relatively recently 1975 was under military rule. After General Franco died, the overall foreign policy objectives consisted of normalizing international relations and bringing Spain into line with the democracies of Western Europe. As any nations goals through its foreign policy are national security, economic well-being and growth, and the forwarding of its ideologies and aims, Spain is no exception, and so utilizes United Nations, European Union EU and military alliances in fulfilling its security, defense, diplomatic and economic objectives. The focus of this paper is to explain how step by step Spain is affirming its global perspective, which put and end to the 150 years of isolation, and the participation in the collective security systems as well as its contribution to the regional defense system.
