This chapter examines the effect of globalisation discourse in Greece on the reproduction of the Greek public discourse and the politico-economic system. It suggests that the year 1996 can be considered to signify a turning point and a new significant shift in Greek public discourse because of the death of Andreas Papandreou which symbolically brought to an end the period of charismatic leaders in Greek politics. This chapter describes the changing public discourse in Greece interacted with the emerging globalisation discourse and how the hegemonic discourse was implicated in the public discourse formation.
