The Legality of Public Pension Reforms in Times of Financial Crisis: The Case of Greece
By Dafni Diliagka
The first reactions after the outbreak of the Greek financial crisis were pension reforms and pension shortages. The central concern of this book is to provide a legal framework that allows pensioners to file claims. The book gives an overview of the factors that made pension reforms necessary before and after the financial crisis. It also describes the pension reforms and the individual shortages in pension benefits, which have been phased in by the Greek Parliament since the beginning of the crisis until 2012. Finally, it deals with the compatibility of state pension reforms and pension shortcuts with the Greek constitution and international law. The examination of constitutional and international law conformity is achieved by the principle of proportionality as a test standard.
