The EU and Greece: Changing frames and pursuing the Odyssey

on July 7, 2015, 16:00
Tribune - Jacques Delors, Pascal Lamy and António Vitorino


Jacques Delors, Pascal Lamy, and António Vitorino take their position on the evolution of relations between the EU and Greece by calling for the pursuit of the Odyssey with Athens in a tribune published by numerous media outlets.

They invite actors and observers to "change frames and pursue the Odyssey", highlighting that:
- emerging from the current crisis demands first and foremost that a complete change of outlook take root in Greece itself, making a clean break with the last forty years;
 We must not look at Greece only through the IMF's microscope but also through the United Nations’ binoculars, in order to preserve the geopolitical - not just financial - stability of Europe.
It is up to the EU to play its part to the full in that reconstruction process by offering Greece a comprehensive  plan including financial support and assessment of the weight of the debt.

They conclude by highlighting that it is because the Greeks and Europeans may look towards a future which out of necessity a shared future that will be better for all that they will be able to find a compromise.

This tribune was published in the following 21 media outlets: In-Cyprus (Cyprus), (Poland), (Slovakia), (Czech Republic), (Turkey),, Financial Times (USA), Financial Times (United Kingdom), Handelsblatt (Germany), NRC Handelsblad (Netherlands), Jutarnji List (Croatia), Luxemburger Wort (Luxembourg), Malta Today (Malta), Le Monde (France), Publico (Portugal), La Repubblica (Italy), Le Soir (Belgium), Le Temps (Switzerland), La Vanguardia (Spain), To Vima (Greece), The World Post.
