The Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation together with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Center for Hellenic Studies at Simon Fraser University invite you to join us for a presentation on Wednesday October 19, 2011<x-apple-data-detectors://0>.

Professor Thanos Veremis of the University of Athens will discuss the current crisis in a presentation titled The Greek Debt Crisis: Greece’s crisis and the need for a general overhaul of institutions, social practices and mentalities.

Since 2008,Greece has been embroiled in the economic turmoil that started with the crisis on Wall Street and soon engulfed the whole planet. What started as an economic crisis has, however, been transformed into a far-reaching crisis of institutions and, more broadly, of the whole political arrangement of the Metapolitefsi (the post 1974 era of Greek politics).

Professor Veremis has for years participated in broad formal and informal conversations on reform in Greece and will help us discuss the need for institutional reform that is so clearly raised by the current crisis.

Thanos Veremis is Professor of Modern History at the University of Athens, Department of European and International Studies, and Member of the Board of Directors of the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP). He received his BA in Government from Boston University and went on to complete his Doctoral work at Trinity College, Oxford.

He is the author of numerous books and articles including: The Military in Greek Politics (1997); with Mark Dragoumis, Greece, World Bibliographical Series, vol.17 (1998); with John Koliopoulos, Greece. The Modern Sequel (2002); The Balkans. Construction and Deconstruction of States (2005). His most recent title (with John Koliopoulos) is: Modern Greece. A History since 1821 (2010)
