Greek University Students Describe the Role of Greece in the Balkans: From Equality to Superiority

  • Christos Zagkos (a1), Argyris Kyridis (a2), Paraskevi Golia (a3) and Ifigenia Vamvakidou (a1)


The role of Greece in the Balkans has been a rather ambiguous but extremely interesting issue for both Greek and European diplomacy for more than 15 years, since the fall of the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe. As with every phenomenon associated with that “dangerous” and “explosive” part of the European Continent, the Greek position in the specific region should be discussed and analysed thoroughly and comprehensively rather than partially.
