In ancient Athens, the agora was the central location where citizens gathered to hear news, discuss and, later, trade. The agora was the heart of the city’s political, cultural and spiritual life and it gave birth to the Greek word for speaking in public: ἀγορεύω (agorevo). It is this spirit we hope to channel in this section of the website.

Here, the Agora is a public forum for discussing events that are unfolding in Greece and beyond. Contributors to Macropolis, as well as guest posters, share their views on political, economic and other matters, while also offering readers the opportunity to express their opinions. As always, those who fail to respect the sanctity of this forum will not be allowed to share in its benefits.

As Greece’s lenders prepare to present Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras with their final proposal, there is one question that everyone wants the answer to: Will SYRIZA MPs support the deal? The problem is that the sui generis nature of the leftist party means it is impossible to make any safe predictions about how its parliamentarians will behave, especially when the details of the settlement are not yet known.
