Professor Diamandouros placed the current economic and social crisis affecting Greece in the historical context of his earlier published work on the tensions created by 'modernisation' processes domestically and the specific constraints of membership of the 'euro-zone'. 

Professor Diamandouros placed the current economic and social crisis affecting Greece in the historical context of his earlier published work on the tensions created by 'modernisation' processes domestically and the specific constraints of membership of the 'euro-zone'. 

He argued that the current crisis has created unprecedented pressures on the state model that has survived for many decades: earlier crises had involved fundamental challenges, but none had carried such direct implications for the position of the state in the economy and society. The current crisis is thus a critical turning-point.
