Abstract

Las dictaduras de Franco y Salazar compartieron varios de los instrumentos que contribuyeron a la edificación y sustentación de sus regímenes a lo largo del tiempo: la Iglesia y la Familia se convirtieron en piedras angulares de los discursos de Estado. Bajo el manto protector del Cristianismo y apoyado sobre la familia, los dictadores ibéricos construyeron lo que denominaron política social: la familia salió reforzada en sus tareas sociales de asistencia y previsión, y la Iglesia aseguró la legitimación para la acción social que los regímenes consideraban suya. En el nuevo contexto ideológico que se estableció después de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, en el que el entorno fascista sucumbía, el discurso de los regímenes se agarraba más aún a los valores tradicionalistas para disfrazar los verdaderos colores de sus políticas sociales.

The dictatorships of Franco and Salazar had in common several instruments that contributed to the edification and support of their regimes over time: Church and Family became the cornerstones of State discourses. Beneath the protection of the mantle of Christianity and supported upon their notions of the family, the Iberian dictators built what they called social policy: the role of family was reinforced in terms of its social tasks of assistance and welfare, and the Church ensured the legitimization of the social action that the regimes called their own. In the new ideological context that was established after the Second World War, where the fascist environment was weakening, the discourse of the regimes clung increasingly to traditionalist values to disguise the true colours of their social policies.
