In this podcast, Georgina Blakeley explains why Francoist deputies voted overwhelmingly for the 1976 Law for Political Reform which brought about their own political demise.
This research is part of the Mission impossible Project, which was funded by the British Academy in 2012-2014. The project aimed to explain the successful passage of the Law, widely seen as the first step in the Spanish transition to democracy. It analysed the strategic manoeuvring of Torcuato Fernández-Miranda, the author of the Law, through a qualitative analysis of the three days of discussion of the Law in the plenary of the Francoist Parliament.
