Abstract: The Eurobarometer surveys published biannually by the European Commission offer time data series tracking public opinion towards the European integration project over time. This paper focuses on mass attitudes in Greece during the period 2010-2020, a decade of drama in Greek-EU relations which had a major impact on public opinion. To what extent have three successive sovereign bailouts, the refugee/migrant crisis and the current covid pandemic nourished societal mistrust of the EU in Greece? How far has this developed into an openly eurosceptic stance? And what are the implications for the future of Greek-EU relations?
