Example text

77 Almost by implication, from the mid-1970s throughout the 1990s, Greece’s “national culture” has conceptualized the Greek–Turkish conflict not simply in terms of Turkish revisionism but basically in terms of Turkish “inherent” aggressiveness and expansionism. Difficulties, indeed, appear when one is called upon to distinguish between revisionism and aggressiveness. There are states, for example, which may regard the status quo as unacceptable and they are also willing to pay a high price to change it.

Indeed, the Karamanlis government has reiterated its commitment to remain within the context of the socialization strategy inaugurated by its socialist predecessors, although with certain modifications. At the EU Summit in Brussels in December 2004 the Greek government agreed to a series of modifications of the EU Helsinki decisions with regard to rigid timetables that were set up for the resolution of the Greek–Turkish dispute and, especially, to their implicit recognition of bilateral disputes beyond the one regarding the delimitation of the Aegean continental shelf.

Chapter 2 traces Greece’s strategic behavior vis-à-vis Turkey from the mid1970s to the mid-1990s. Apart from discussing the basic determinants of Greek security thinking, this chapter further explores how the construction and evolution of the “threat from the east” haunted Greece’s security planning discourse and also nourished an “underdog” national culture from the mid-1970s to the mid-1990s. Either by strengthening itself through the parallel existence and function of a “no-dialogue/procrastinating” agentic culture or by prevailing over a “resolution” agentic culture, Greece’s “underdog national culture” remained the dominant factor in Greece’s security thinking and the driving force behind its decisions to choose among traditional balancing policies vis-à-vis a threatening neighbor.
