restricted access Greek Policy toward the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, 1991-1995
Abstract

The article evaluates Greek foreign policy toward the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia from 1991 to 1995. It applies five criteria to determine success: clarity and coherence of problem definition, adequacy of resources devoted to implementation, degree of dissent in the open among key policy makers, the creation of cooperation and good will, and the congruence of Greek policy with prevailing international opinion. Despite some success, the policy failed to produce the desired outcome or to resolve the issue. In contrast, it precipitated a costly rift between Greece and its allies.
