How the Greek-Euro Crisis is Transforming Europe and Greece


The Euro-sovereign debt crisis has been plaguing the European Union for the last four years. Although many states are concerned by this issue, this crisis has often come to be known as the Greek crisis.

Given their expertise on the current crisis but also historical insight from previous periods, five distinguished scholars (from different academic backgrounds) will discuss the ways in which this ongoing crisis may be transforming radically both the E.U. and Greece.

Yannis Ioannides, Max and Herta Neubauer Chair and Professor of Economics, Tufts University: "Privatizations and Long-Run Growth: Are We Doing Things Right?"

Stylianos Perrakis, RBC Distinguished Professor of Financial Derivatives, Concordia University: "It's the Governance, Stupid! Structural Reforms and Microeconomic Policy in the Greek Crisis"

Thanasis Stengos, Professor of Economics, University of Guelph.

George Tsebelis, Anatal Rapoport Collegiate Profesor of Political Science, University of Michigan: "The Sense of Urgency and the Inertia of Institutions"

Tassos Anastassiadis, Phrixos Papachristidis Chair of Modern Greek Studies, McGill University: "Concluding Remarks: Greek Crises and International System Changes: Historical Insight"


Organized by the Papachristidis Chair in Modern Greek Studies (McGill), RBC Chair in Financial Derivatives -John Molson School of Business (Concordia) and the European Union Center of Excellence McGill-Universite de Montreal.
