LECTURE: The Greek crisis: Political and economic challenges

Wednesday 27th of May, kl 18.15 Universitetshuset sal IX (free entry)
 
The Greek crisis: Political and economic challenges
 
More than five years since the global financial crisis in 2009, the Greek crisis remains a focal point within the Eurozone. In this seminar a number of questions will be addressed: Why has reform implementation  stalled? Is it possible for Greece to regain competitive advantages and return to economic growth within the Eurozone? What would a Grexit look like?  What lessons does Greece offer for Eurozone member states? What would a breakdown in trust between different EU members say about potential future rifts within the Eurozone?
