The Greek Politics Specialist Group (GPSG) of the UK’s Political Studies Assocation (PSA) was founded in 2004. Within a few years, it has become a leading international network of social scientists with an interest in Greece, as well as one of the PSA’s largest and most active groups.

We have a strong record of supporting research on Greek politics, through the organisation of conference panels and events, both independently and in collaboration with affiliate organisations and groups. We also actively support young researchers presenting their work to international audiences through financial support and advice. Almost 90% of the Group’s funds have gone directly to supporting scholars especially junior academics and researchers from regional universities.

On this part of our website you can find more information about our aims and background, as well as further details on our membership and funding.

The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”
