Examining the structural roots of violent crime in Greece


Dr Leonidas Cheliotis (with Dr Sappho Xenakis, of the LSE) had an article published in AthensPlus on the structural roots of the recent apparent upsurge in violent crime in Greece. The article drew attention to 'the mounting socioeconomic inequalities generated in considerable part by the corrupt quagmire of Greek social and political life, and exacerbated by the rise of neo-liberalism'.

Read the full article 'Violent crime in Greece: the structural roots of the problem' on pages 4-5 of AthensPlus. AthensPlus is a weekly newspaper published by the International Herald Tribune and Kathimerini SA.
