This chapter presents the genesis and the basic characteristics of the Greek state and administration in two parts. The first part looks at the genesis of the Greek state, administration, and the early layers of administrative law. This phase may be seen as an ambivalent contest between the proponents of modern bureaucratic institutions and those adhering to the traditions and social attitudes towards authority developed under the long Ottoman rule. The second part of the chapter considers the classic elements of the modern Greek state, administration, and administrative law. It examines the basic elements of a modern administrative system where the rule of law was secured by the Council of State.
