An unnoticed similarity between the Greek dictatorship of 1967 and the Turkish one of 1980 is the unsuccessful Greek regime's attempt to transform itself as the Turkish one did in 1983. The failure of the “Markezinis experiment” (the Greek regime-led transition) presents an interesting comparison with the Turkish transition of 1983, calling for an accounting of the reasons for the different outcomes of the two regimes’ self-transformation attempts. The article offers a framework for the above, based on the difference in the position of the regimes vis-à-vis that of the army within the political of the two countries before and during the dictatorships, and on the tactics of the actors involved in the transition processes.
