The objective of this article is to analyse the new context in which Spanish foreign policy should develop, after the break in consensus and the growing politization that has occurred in the last few years. The changes that have occurred in the international order have ended up decisively affecting Spanish foreign policy, which has entered a new stage of politization and democratisation. In this article, it will be argued that this change is not temporary but rather structural, and that it is due to both internal and external causes.Thus, the current challenge should no be thought of as rebuilding consensus in foreign policy, but rather how to manage the dissent.
