The role of the social movement 15M in the process of democratization of Spain
This article analyses the social movement 15M. Its main objective is to prove the research question, whether the social movement 15M plays a role in the process of democratisation of Spain. It comprises some background information related to the historic, political and economic development of the country, to help the reader understand the requirements of the social movement 15M as well as the overall situation in Spain. Moreover, the 15M development together with the description of the protesters and their requirements are explained, too. The analysis of twenty-five 15M proposals summarised in Pilar Velasco’s book No nos representan compared with the features of democracy according to Jean Grugel prove, that the social movement 15M forms a significant part of the process of democratisation since it actually requires the fulfilment of those particular values of democracy.
