Following the end of the bipolar world, Greece gradually realized both the benefits of forming a multidimensional foreign policy and the limits set by its participation in Western institutions. This essay examines the relations between the so-called BRICS (the association of the major emerging national economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) and Greece since the end of the Cold War. It focuses on Greece’s relations with Russia and China and the reasons behind Greece’s foreign policy change toward establishing deeper relations with them and the role that it can play as a state that belongs to the West but also has strong ties with the East.
