Crisis, Change and Continuity in Spanish Politics

In the aftermath of the 2008 international economic crisis, which hit Spain hard starting in 2010, the country has faced deep political and institutional challenges. Bonnie Field’s talk will analyze the patterns of change and continuity related to the party system, governance and territorial politics.


Bonnie Field is Professor of Global Studies at Bentley University. She has a PhD in Political Science from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research interests center on political parties and political institutions in transitional and institutionalized democracies in Europe and Latin America. She investigates minority governments, parliamentary regimes, inter-party relations in parliament, processes of candidate selection and political appointments, and regime democratization. She has a particular interest in Spanish politics. Lunch will be served.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
