Policy Study


From a seemingly successful member state and an influential actor in the process of EU enlargement, Greece has sunk into the devastating financial, political and social effects of the crisis. This consideration made the country one of the target states for assessment visits in the framework of the FEPS-EFDS research programme “Enhancing democracy pre- and post EU accession”. The way Greece’s supposed recovery process has been handled so far harmed to a large extent the European integration process. Consequently, this article aims to give an overview of the current economic, political and social situation in Greece and advocate for the implementation of the progressive alternative policies both at European and national level.

Authors are Jan Marinus Wiersma, EFDS Vice-President, Danijel Tadić, EFDS Project Officer and Judit Tánczos, FEPS Policy Advisor
