Experts, Exports, and the Global Entanglements of Postwar Planning

Vasiliki Petridou (University of Patras - Greece) Modernization in Greece after WWII and OECD Policy Proposal

The Organisation for European Economic Cooperation (OEEC) was founded in 1948 with the aim to connect the European countries and the United States through the Marshall’s Plan economic planning. In 1961, it was renamed as Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and its goal became to examine the conditions of economic, social and cultural development of the 36 countries participating in it. Greece was one of the founding members of the OEEC. Since 1958, the OECD has been working with Greek governments to modernize and develop the country.

Part of the investigations undertaken by the OECD for a successful globalization in cooperation with European governments is to provide its expertise, which affects the development trends of the nations and states. Even though the decisions and suggestions of these Organizations seem to have an impact on urban planning, there are few researches in the international literature that have been examining their participation in the evolution of spatial data in the post-WWII period.
