Title: The Hellenic Parliament’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic – A Balancing Act between Necessity and Realism
Description: The article seeks to approach the response of parliaments to the COVID-19 pandemic, with a special focus on the Hellenic Parliament case. The study captures the events from the first institutional response to the pandemic in March 2020 until August 2020, when a second pandemic wave in Greece seemed to be ante portas. The Hellenic Parliament, after an initial shock period, focused on the continuation of its operation, while protecting the health of its members, officials and personnel. The authors underline the necessity to study the current pandemic in a holistic way, both from an institutional and academic point of view, in order to understand what has occurred and to learn valuable lessons for future conduct with similar disruptive events.
