Culture and geopolitics in the Eastern Mediterranean: Greek parliamentary diplomacy and the World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association (WHIA)
There is little academic research on Greek parliamentary diplomacy. The growth of the role of parliamentary actors worldwide is now well documented. This paper tries to bridge the existing gap on the Greek Parliament (Vouli). It focuses on the specific case of the World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association, a forum initiated by the Greek government but steered by the Greek Vouli. This paper is a pilot-study. The goal is to raise attention to a neglected dimension of Greek foreign policy.
