Abstract

Most EU foreign policy decisions require the agreement of all EU member states. Following the victory of Syriza in the Greek elections on 25 January, Kyriakos Moumoutzis assesses the impact the election result will have on both Greek foreign policy and the capacity of the EU to negotiate joint foreign policy positions. He notes that with the Syriza government already having opposed an EU statement criticising Russia over the situation in Ukraine, the early signs are that Greece may aim to differentiate itself from the positions of its European partners, making unanimous EU foreign policy decisions more difficult to achieve.
