|Summary||This course examines diplomatic relations between Britain and Spain between the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in July 1936 and end of the UN boycott of Franco Spain in November 1950. It will consider the adoption and the consequences of British non-intervention during the Civil War; British efforts to maintain Spanish neutrality during the Second World War; and the British role in establishing and then revoking the international boycott of the Franco regime following the defeat of Hitler and Mussolini. It will ask why, despite provoking controversy, British foreign policy towards Spain in this period was marked by continuity under Conservative, Coalition and Labour Governments.
