The present doctoral dissertation is an in-depth study on fear. It concerns a systematic investigation of the functions of fear, risk, and threat in parliamentary discourse, in relation to the international political treaty created by the European economic and political crisis. The investigation of the ways of theoretical coalescence of the fear within the field of International Relations is the central goal of this dissertation. The main goal of this study is to contribute to a better understanding of the strategic issues of a state - which is experiencing a wider economic and political crisis - by analyzing in depth the rhetorical dimension of fear as reflected in its parliamentary discourse. The position of this dissertation is that the findings of this analysis can lead to the revelation of the transnational and intra-state dynamics that led to the voting of the memorandum conventions. The theoretical part of the research is an interdisciplinaryfermentation between different approaches to the phobic phenomenon. The ways in which the concepts of threat, risk, otherness, security, securitization, ontological security, campaign mode, and rhetorical topoi can provide analytical and interpretive power for understanding the fear phenomenon are specified and interpreted as also the processes of strategic utilization of it by the acting political subjects. This interdisciplinary fermentation produces a structured body of research questions, which contribute to the problematization and interdisciplinary convergence of distinct scientific fields and distinct theoretical approaches.As the scientific fields are formed based on research questions, but also produce other research questions, part of the contribution of the present research is the establishment of an interdisciplinary body of research questions related to the investigation of fear.These research questions are utilized in the present dissertation, acting as a form by demonstrating the functionality of the proposed interdisciplinary proposal. The empirical part of the research consists of three parts. In the first part, the fear arguments of the parliamentary discourse are sought. The fear arguments presented by the acting political subjects who are summoned to vote for memorandum conventions are identified and classified.Through this process, a fundamental question is attempted: Are there fear arguments in the parliamentary discourse of the the three Memoranda? In the second part, the fear arguments are analyzed under the sensitivity offered by the theoretical equipment of International Relations, Social Psychology, Anthropology, Rhetorical Criticism and International Political Communication.Through this process a question is answered that follows the ascertainment of the existence of fear arguments in the parliamentary discourse of the three Memoranda: What are the morphological characteristics of the fear arguments? Finally, in the third part, the correlations between the fear arguments and their morphological attributes with the more specific historical conditions and the characteristics of the acting political subjects are signified and interpreted. Through this final process, the most specialized question regarding the context of the present study is answered: "What can I understand about Greece of the economic crisis when I am aware of the fear expressed by its members of the parliament?". Both the theoretical framework and the empirical analysis are part of a proposed interdisciplinary analytical equipment for International Relations Rhetorical Criticism scholars who wish to engage in such research answering the core question: What does fear analysis reveal about the intra-state level, the transnational level, about the self and the "other"?
