The book’s final chapter draws on the empirical material presented in Chaps.  3 5 to draw conclusions about (a) the ability of each of the theoretical models outlined in Chap.  2 to shed light on the depoliticisation of Greece’s public revenue administration, (b) Greece’s reform capacity and (c) the link between conditionality and the operation of the European Union.
