Abstract


The recent Greek economic crisis between 2008 and 2018 called for radical amendments in the public administration that ultimately affected various structures and processes. The present study endeavors to explore the determinants of administrative and organizational changes in the public administration of the Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food during the time of crisis. Primary data were gathered through a qualitative survey with public officers and stakeholders and were gauged through a Delphi policy framework. The results of the study indicated that, according to expert’s opinion, the public administration was neither prepared to efficiently confront the crisis nor the changes that followed. Stakeholders on the other hand, claim that despite all the changes that have occurred, the level of bureaucracy seems to be unaffected and that there is the need for public services to be enhanced.
