Political science has benefited greatly from the research effort of the past few years dealing with discourse and its importance in po-litical processes. However, the discursive element has remained under-analysed in Greek politics. Until recently, the aforemen-tioned country studies were preoccupied with positivist analyses based on a traditional understanding of interests and political pow-er. The papers of this panel attempt to fill in the gap in the relevant literature by concentrating on language, narrative, and the repre-sentation of the “self” and the “other”, adding to the recent turn in the study of Greek politics.
