Lecturer: Professor Dimitris Christopoulos
Professor Dimitris Christopoulos at the Department of Political Science and History of Panteion University, will give a lecture entitled “Who is the Greek citizen? Citizenship status from the creation of the Greek state till today”, at the Greek Centre, on Tuesday 24 September, as a part of the Greek History and Culture Seminars, offered by the Greek Community of Melbourne.
“Who is the Greek citizen?’’ is par excellence an open question. Which are the criteria that have been used to define “who is the Greek citizen?” during the last two centuries since the emergence of the modern Greek nation-state and until today? Have those criteria been stable in time or shifting? And if they have been shifting, how often do they change and why? What similar criteria of membership in a political community can they be compared with? Which have been the decisive factors that enabled non-Greeks to become Greek citizens? Who was included in, and who was excluded from such processes of citizenship granting and acquisition? What have been the expectations of the state from its citizens? And to what extend is citizenship overwhelmed with ideology?
