Political extremism has been present in Greece since 1974. Despite the adoption of a counter-terrorist governmental strategy around the turn of the millennium which temporarily limited episodes of violent extremism, violence remains a serious problem. By its unprecedented magnitude and durée, the ongoing financial crisis has triggered the emergence of circumstances that promote the toleration, acceptance and use of violence. The paper focuses on different expressions of political violence in Greece from 2008 onwards, aiming to identify its repertoires and causes, the actors involved, their ideological background, targets, aims and consequences.
