2008 HO Staff in the Press

December 2008

HO staff comment on the situation in Greece:

  • Kathimerini Newspaper
    Professor Kevin Featherstone, Director of the Hellenic Observatory, LSE, wrote an extended article entitled 'The Deeper Causes of the Greek Crisis' in ' I Kathimerini', the leading Greek newspaper on Sunday. He argued that there is a 'systemic problem of governance' in Greece, which requires a shift of cultural attitudes to enable the rhetoric of reform of the state and the liberalisation of society to become reality. Greeks need to face up to the contradictions in their own social attitudes, between craving a European 'modernity', and sustaining traditional habits of favours and accepting petty corruption.

    Greek Policemen Held in Shooting That Sparked 5 Days of Riots Two Athens policemen charged with the shooting of a teenager that touched off five days of rioting were ordered to remain in jail pending trial, as a previously planned general strike shut down much of Greece and disrupted travel. Kevin Featherstone, director of the Hellenic Observatory at the London School of Economics, said the riots were rooted in anger at both parties over a culture of corruption.
