The Syntagma (Σύνταγμα), the Constitution of Greece is resolved by the Fifth Revisionary Parliament of the Hellenes and entered into force in 1975. It has been revised twice since then, in 1985 and in 2001.
It is set out in 4 parts. The first part, Basic provisions, establishes the Greek government as a parliamentary republic, and confirms the prevalence of the Orthodox Church in Greece. The second part concerns individual and social rights. The third part describes the organization and function of the State, in which Article 28 formally integrates international laws and international conventions into Greek law. The fourth part are special, final and transitory provisions.
