There remains a void between the legal framework of immigration in Greece and its implementation. The essay explores this theme, first by providing an overview of Greek legislative acts and immigration laws from 1991 to 2015. This discussion is then placed within the Greek political arena by focusing on three political parties in Greece that have espoused anti-immigrant rhetoric. The essay concludes with suggestions of ways in which reconciliation can occur between Greek immigration law and the political environment.
