The new Greek PM, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, has promised much domestic reform.  From this, he hopes to gain international credibility to lessen the shackles on Greece’s fiscal policy.  Yet, hopes for major domestic reform have been dashed in the past.  Will it be different this time?

Nikos Konstandaras is a columnist for the newspaper Kathimerini and a contributing op-ed writer for the New York Times International Edition. He is the founding editor of Kathimerini’s English Edition, which is published as a supplement to the New York Times in Greece and Cyprus, and he edited it from 1998 to 2017. He was managing editor of the Greek edition of Kathimerini from 2004 to 2017. He studied Ancient Greek (MA, Wits., S. Africa) and worked as a correspondent for The Associated Press in Athens from 1989 to 1997, covering the broader region.

Kevin Featherstone is Eleftherios Venizelos Professor in Contemporary Greek Studies and Professor in European Politics. He is the Director of the Hellenic Observatory. He has held visiting positions at the University of Minnesota; New York University; and Harvard University.  Before LSE, he held academic posts at the universities of Stirling and Bradford. He was the first foreign member of the National Council for Research and Technology (ESET) in Greece, serving from 2010-2013. He is contributing regularly to Kathimerini.
