A New Approach in and for Greece
The results of the June 2012 Greek elections and a possible softening of the conditionality imposed on the country in exchange for the rescue package may give the recession-stricken country some breathing space. However, the author argues that to enable administrative bodies to function, break up fossilized structures and combat corruption and political cronyism, far-reaching reform is necessary. This can only be implemented by domestic forces, but will nevertheless profit from external support. A new strategy is required to avoid the feeling from prevailing across society that future prospects are lacking.
