Panayis Panagiotopoulos, ELIAMEP Senior Research Fellow and Triandafyllos Karatrantos, ELIAMEP Research Fellow co-authored a chapter in the collective volume of EKKE “The political portrait of Greece II. Stakes and challenges” (original title: Το πολιτικό πορτραίτο της Ελλάδας της Ελλάδας ΙΙ. Διακυβεύματα και προκλήσεις).

The aim of the chapter is to present the main characteristics and data of political violence in Greece in the period 2015-2019. To describe the transition from mass violence within social movements to a special condition of controlled violence that is partly aff ected by the rise of a radical party in power and is called upon to transform political-ideological developments.
