Discursive articulations of the Cypriot economic crisis in Greek media

P. 268-289.
Editor of translation: N. Carpentier, V. Doudaki.

This study examines the ways that the economic crisis in Cyprus is covered by mainstream Greek media from different (left and liberal) political affiliations. Cyprus is a country with strong historical, geographic, social, cultural, economic and political ties to Greece. Main events concerning Cyprus are followed by the Greek politicians, media and citizens with great interest. Further, Greece’s own crisis triggers an additional interest in the Cypriot crisis, as both countries agreed to ‘bailout’ agreements with the ‘troika’ (an institution composed by the European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the European Commission), in exchange of severe austerity reforms, and thus, Cyprus can serve as an example to follow or to avoid, of any attempted policy of economic recovery.
