Europe's Greek Crisis: Hang Together or Hang Separately? Perspectives on the Future of the Eurozone

Seminar in Brussels

The Eurozone has been in crisis ever since 2008, but the critical events surrounding the Greek situation last summer reached new levels of divisions and misunderstandings. As many continue to insist, the compromise found is not a sustainable solution - neither for Greece, nor for the Eurozone, considering its structural shortcomings.

Against this backdrop, this seminar will take a closer look at the different actors’ intentions and what it means for the future of the Eurozone: Are the reforms undertaken by the Greek government likely to put the country’s economy back on track and how will EU countries react? What visions for the future of the Eurozone have been competing against each other across the EU, and what room is there for compromise?
