This essay will attempt to exhibit the various legislative measures introduced by the Kingdom of Spain in recent years to combat terrorism while attempting, at the same time, to define the context of their respective adoption. Among these measures are the "Citizen Protection Law" and the "Law amending the Penal Code", both adopted in the framework of the "National Security Strategy" drawn up by the Spanish Government. More precisely, this essay will attempt to reveal the various legal criticisms which these two laws have had to face regarding to the applicable articles from the Spanish Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights. To this end, not only this essay will present a general review of these criticisms and their legal foundations, but it will also attempt to demonstrate the possible negative impacts of these two legislation on the right of association and the right to strike in an employment context.
