Comparison of two different times in Spanish international history.

Theory and practice of international relations research paper. Must have a literature review synthesizing legitimate and scholarly sources. Thesis and defense of thesis.

Possible working thesis: Spain is better off now, despite immense corruption and recession due to the changes in civic culture and resulting strategies in diplomatic and international relations. This is especially true because of its inclusion in the European Union. There are international laws to be regarded that have clearly been violated as a result of poor leadership and governmental priority. Despite this, Spain is in a much better place to make improvements now because of its sense of community in the EU and also because there are new parties offering legitimate consolation and guidance for the people out of this mess.
