(p.315) 12 Underwriting Democracy: The European Community and Greece
The International Dimensions of Democratization

Basilios Tsingos

Oxford University Press

Reviews the existing literature on the manner in which the Greek transition from authoritarian rule to democracy was effected, and evaluates the role that the European Community and its member states played both in the transition process and in the subsequent democratic consolidation. It argues that the channels of influence were supplementary, rather than central or decisive, and that the EC and its members cannot properly be labelled as ‘exporters’ of democracy within the transition process. The influence has rather been felt in the consolidation phase, with the EC acting as a ‘guarantor’ or an ‘underwriter’ of democracy.
