Abstract:

The following article sets out to examine the activities, achievements and shortcomings of the two leading green actors in the Andalusian political field, Ecologistas en Accin Andaluca (EA-A) and Los Verdes de Andaluca (LVA). Its main aim is to explore and compare the position, strategies and efficacy of both groups at a regional level; a secondary aim is to use this regional case study to explore the achievements and shortcomings of Spanish ecologistas at a national level. The decision to carry out a regional case study has made it feasible to provide a level of detail which would have been quite impossible if aiming to compare green parties and movements at national level: the study demonstrates that both actors (EA-A and LVA ) have contributed to the greening of Andaluca, showing how relatively small groups can influence policy outcomes.
