Learning Outcomes
Please describe the learning outcomes of the course: Knowledge, skills and abilities acquired after the successfulc ompletion of the course.
·         The aim of the course is to analyze the stages, the problems, and the challenges of the Greek economy and society and the relationship of the country with the international division of labour. The emphasis on the course will be given on the analysis of the dominant economic policies and the level of social protection in Greece. In this frame the agricultural sector was the dominant sector until the Second World War. After the War, the shipping sector replaced the agriculture one as the dominant sector. The common element of both periods was the absence of an organized social policy network. On the contrary, since 1974 during the Third Hellenic Republic, an effort is made to redefine the economic and social model, with adaptation of the Greek economy to the European integration process and the development of social policy since 1980’s with the political and electoral dynamic of the Greek socialist party (PASOK)

(a) know the main developments in economic and social policy in Greece
