Past Discussion Papers

The Hellenic Observatory first published a series of Discussion Papers in 2000. The papers were published both electronically and in hard copies.The series ran until 2004 but has since been discontinued. A separate series of E-papers was also launched in 2003 but it was also discontinued by 2004. Two widely cited Policy Papers and an edited Conference Publication were also published between 1999 and 2002. In 2007 the Hellenic Observatory launched a new series that replaces all of the previous publications: GreeSE: Hellenic Observatory Papers on Greece and Southeast Europe. 

The list below provides links to all the past publications.
