The European Union (EU) failed repeatedly to hold Greece accountable for violations of the Treaties it signed over the past five decades. In particular, the EU not only did not express reservations in the face of these violations, but on two crucial occasions, in 1979 and again in 2000, it even rewarded Greece with concessionary decisions, which contributed significantly to its present calamities. Hence, there arises the following question: How can we explain these EU failures in the case of Greece? The objectives of this paper are twofold: First, to highlight the circumstances which prompted the EU Authorities to treat Greece as a special case, and second, to sketch briefly the rudiments of an answer to the preceding question.
