The paper then examines the economic and cultural dimensions of Greece's presence in the region.

From the Paper:

"Greece can be considered to be one of the most important countries in the European Union and of the region. This is largely due to its geostrategic position as well as the resources it has at its disposal in terms of financial and political capital. At the same time, it represents a connecting point for two essential regions of the world, Europe and the Middle East. Through its geographical position as well as through the capabilities it uses on a constant basis in order to lead a coherent political direction, Greece is viewed today as a crucial actor in this part of the world."
