The road ahead remains rocky for Greece’s newly elected prime minister.
Ten years after the onset of Greece’s biggest crisis since World War II, radical populism is running out of steam.
A giant rally in Thessaloniki and another in Athens show the strength of feeling in Greek Macedonia – and all over a country’s name.
Populist politicians are on the march, first in Latin America, then in Europe and the US. They are on both the left and right, and their policies vary, but their approach carries the same risks.
Syriza’s re-election was remarkable for the same reasons that it will struggle to implement the economic reforms Greece needs.
Syriza lives to fight another day, but the omens for Greece’s future are as ominous as ever.
An opposition politician and academic argues that new revelations from the Syriza leadership imply that the Prime Minister misled the Greek people.
Greece’s ‘accidental economist’ speaks to the UK’s leading minds on Syriza, the troika, and whether he’s just a little over-exposed.
After 206 turbulent days in power, Alexis Tsipras now presides over a coalition in tatters.
The deal is done with Europe, and the people aren’t happy about it.
A punitive deal which makes life hard for the Greek people and which sets dangerous precedents for the eurozone.
Since the 1990s, the EU has been less about social integration and more about neo-liberal values.
What might feel like a victory this morning for eurozone leaders and lenders has only served to feed a eurosceptic beast.
Backed into a corner as the banks reached the brink, the Greek prime minister may have fashioned some sort of success, and the prospect of something approaching debt relief a little down the line.
Talk on the street is that nothing short of revolution will do after the referendum.
The Greek rejection of the bailout means it’s time to brace ourselves: Grexit is now an 80% probability.
Greece has voted resoundingly against the bailout terms set by the IMF in a historic referendum.
European leaders have consistently claimed that their anti-contagion measures would protect the rest of the eurozone from a Greek exit. This looks like pure propaganda.
It might seem like Greece and Europe are arguing about money, but it’s really all about vengeance.
Debt relief should not be a divisive bargaining tool. Better that it is a formal part of a structured approach to risks in a currency union.
