“Konstantinos Karamanlis: Archive, Events & Texts”

Basic parameter of the Foundation activities is publishing, the core of which is the 12-volume edition “Konstantinos Karamanlis: Archive, Events & Texts”. The project was the product of long research, based on the use of archival material.


This is a chronological record of the presence of Karamanlis in public life, based on his personal archive, Greek and International daily press, Parliamentary Proceedings as well as from every valid contemporary testimony, with extensive references to all aspects of public life: foreign policy, economy, agriculture, public works, social policy, civil administration, education and culture.


This material published is disencumbered from critical judgments, in order to maintain its status as a foundamental source for modern Greek history.
