Information Society Governance in Greece

“One Swallow Does Not Make a Summer”

In Greece, information society policy started in the 1970s. The first two decades focused on the development of information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructures and preparation for the liberalisation of the telecommunications market. Only in the mid-1990s did the information society concept enter the policy agenda and in the early 2000s the first integrated strategy was implemented in the form of an Operational Programme (OPIS) co-financed by the EU.
