This article discusses the notion of 'Europeanization' as it might apply to the position of Greece in the European Union. It advances three basic propositions: (i) that the domestic impact of EU integration can be differentiated along various dimensions; (ii) of particular relevance is differentiation between the centre and periphery; and (iii) that the impact of the EU in Greece can be gauged in terms of a series of inter-connected features: a Gramscian hegemony, external penetration of the state administration, dependence on EU aid, fragmentation, and a 'core executive' empowerment.
