Greece has adopted many reforms, yet most of its citizens complain in the Eurobarometer that they are seriously affected by corruption in their daily lives. While the administrative burden has been somewhat reduced and transparency increased, judicial independence, in particular regarding corruption prosecution and top courts appointments has regressed. A long list of reforms agreed with the European Union meant to remove legal privileges and open access awaits implementation. The press needs more diverse ownership and civil society does not articulate sufficient demand for general interest public integrity.
