Greece is a constitutional republic and multiparty parliamentary democracy. Legislative authority is vested in a unicameral parliament, which approves a government headed by a prime minister. Parliamentary elections are considered free and fair by observers. The government took steps to investigate, prosecute, and punish officials who committed human rights abuses or engaged in corruption. There were reports and complaints from NGOs and international organizations regarding government failure to effectively investigate and punish police abuse and the lack of independent investigation of and accountability for widespread credible allegations of forced returns of asylum seekers.

The overall score indicates that there are medium risks of potential human rights violations in this country. This may also include the tourism sector. Relevant risks for the tourism sector are, e.g.:
  • Threats of violence against indigenous women and girls
  • Threats of violence against members of national, racial, and ethnic minority groups
  • Threats of violence against LGBTQI+ persons
  • Serious restrictions on free expression and media

For better comparability, we have converted the original scores of the indices to a uniform scale of 1-100 (1 most negative, 100 most positive).
