Show Summary Details


The 1975 Constitution (as amended in 1986, 2001, and 2008) provides in Article 28, paragraph 1 that, from their promulgation by law and their entry into force, international conventions constitute an integral part of the internal Hellenic law and prevail over any contrary internal provision. However, their application by the courts with regard to foreigners is always under the condition of reciprocity. Treaties enter into force immediately after their signature, without the interference of the constitutionally competent authority and without the intervention of ratification procedures, acceptance or approval, and without their submission to the Parliament.
