Political Analysis and Public Policy
This work was inspired by the research group "Civic Participation and Political Change", led by Dmitri Gennadievich Zaytsev, an associate professor of the Public Policy Department. After the global financial crisis, Greece is in a quite interesting, from the scientific point of view, position: an unstable economic situation, a debt hole, the pressure of creditors, protests inside the country. Are protest publics able to influence the situation from within? In this paper, the model of participation of protest public in political changes under the name of "Watchdogs" is checked.
