Updated on 05 February 2015
Written by Marcin Grajewski

Greece’s new government, led by the election-winning, anti-austerity Syriza party is trying to convince euro area partners to offer the country more debt relief that would allow it to ease austerity and bolster economic growth. The charm offensive in European capitals of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has so far produced mixed results, leading to fresh turmoil on financial markets. Following are comments, reports and studies on Greece and the euro area from major international think tanks and other research institutes.
