This chapter analyses the history of the Brotherhood in Spain, which is mainly limited to the Syrian branch, whose members fled the regime of Hafez al-Assad in the 1960s. It shows how the liberalisation of the law for the recognition of Muslims and non-Catholics allowed the Brothers in Spain to organise themselves in cultural organisations and publish their ideas and spread Islam. It also traces their gradual decline as a distinct organisation in the 1990s.

Keywords:   Spanish Muslim Brotherhood, Syrian Brotherhood, cultural associations, publications, decline, integration, domestication
