Resonances of European unity in Spain (1960–1961)

Report by Robert van Schendel, Secretary General of the European Movement, submitted between 1960 and 1961. This report concludes with a positive assessment of the awareness among the Spanish general public of the question of closer European unity. Van Schendel also emphasises the rigid European policy of the Franco regime and stresses that, even if Spain has demonstrated remarkable economic openness, its political system has yet to develop in a similar vein. The author appreciates the significant impact of the Europeanist groups established in Spain on the basis of the principles of the European Movement.
