Show Summary Details


This chapter introduces the case studies of Greece and Ireland, which were considered as social agents in the 1990s. It analyses the nature of the Greek-Irish comparison as social agents and suggests that this analysis allow us to elucidate the materialisation process of the hegemonic discourse of globalisation. This chapter contends that the European Union (EU) factor in the communication of globalisation discourse is challenging because the EU is both a part of and a response to globalisation.

Keywords: case studies; Greece; Ireland; social agents; hegemonic discourse; globalisation
