Chatzistavrou, Filippa, Michalaki, Sofia, (2015), “Greece as an example of “post-politics” in the eurozone”, EPIN Papers, Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), Commentary No. 28, 9 November
The past six months of negotiations between Greece and the EU/IMF have tested the unity, limits, stamina and financial interdependence of eurozone member states. Greece has emerged wounded from the fray, but Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has established beyond doubt his dominance in Greek politics, against all odds, and in defiance of partisan competitors at home and his counterparts’ wishes in the rest of Europe. Beyond the political significance of Syriza’s victory, this third vote of confidence in seven months brings certain characteristics of both Greek and EU politics into sharper relief. This commentary briefly outlines these characteristics and the wider impact they may have for the EU.
