Abstract: Let $G$ be a complex reductive group and let $C$be a smooth curve of genus at least one. We prove a converse to a theorem of Atiyah-Bott concerning the stratification of the space of holomorphic $G$-bundles on $C$. In case the genus of $C$ is one, we establish that there is a stratification in the strong sense. The paper concludes with a characterization of the minimally unstable strata in case $G$ is simple
