Welcome to the Greek Politics Specialist Group

The Greek Politics Specialist Group (GPSG) of the UK’s Political Studies Association (PSA) is an international, non-profit network of leading experts on Greek politics.

We support research on Greek political and social affairs, organise scholarly events and provide a link between academic experts, practitioners and the media.

“Although only a few may originate a policy, we are all able to judge it…
We do not look upon discussion as a stumbling block in the way of political action,
but as an indispensable preliminary to acting wisely….”

Pericles (cited in Karl Popper’s “The Open Society and Its Enemies”)
