Debt audits have been used across the world to allow civil society to hold to account those responsible for the damage caused by their country's indebtedness. An audit in Ecuador in 2008 encouraged President Correa to default on some of Ecuador's most unjust debt, leading to a write-down by borrowers. Two former Ecuadorian ministers have signed the call to support an audit in Greece, alongside Members of the European Parliament, international economists and academics and civil society representatives.

Campaigners are angry that Greece's debt has mushroomed since the financial crisis in 2008, and believe Greece's levels of debts are unsustainable. They argue that austerity measures are forcing the poorest in society to pay for the economic problems caused by the financial collapse in 2008.
