HELADAís Approach to Issues of the Day

Supported? Divided? Under consideration?


HELADA members represent a range of backgrounds and views. We came together out of a shared interest in US politics, but also saw our common residence in Greece as a thread of equal importance. How both of these interests fit into the wider world is the unifying theme.

We call ourselves progressives, although we loosely define the term and donít agree on all issues. In fact, there is practically nothing we all agree on 100 percent. And that presents one of our knottiest challenges. How can we make a statement on any issue that all of us can live with?

Our answer is in the shape of this Issues section:

  • a summary of our views on each issue

  • links to recommended wider reading or viewing

  • a notation on Focal Points, where issues interact

Read our overviews on each issue, using the links in the blue column on the left.
