   - *The social impact*

The Crisis Observatory <http://crisisobs.gr/en/the-observatory/> of the
Hellenic Foundation for European & Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP) think tank is
holding its 2nd Annual Conference <http://crisisobs.gr/en/2014/11/16667/> to
discuss the social consequences of the economic crisis in Europe and
Greece. The conference will focus on politics and policies for solidarity
and growth. Speakers will attempt to identify whether the social
inequalities are the result of the European project’s weaknesses, or
whether they are related to the structural characteristics of modern-day,
globalised capitalism.

Regardless of the reasons, the conference will seek alternative approaches
to strengthen social solidarity. A roundtable discussion on the prospects
for sustainable and inclusive growth in Europe will follow. The event will
be held on December 16, at the French Institute of Greece
