The 3rd Greek bailout: lessons to be learnt?
Wednesday 25 November 2020, 16.00-17.30 UK Time (18.00-19.30 GR Time)
Joaquín Almunia led an independent evaluation report of the EU’s financial rescue of Greece (2015-18) and the report was published this summer. We will discuss the successes – stabilising the euro-zone and Greece’s public finances – as well as the consequences (falls in investment, a major rise in unemployment, and a massive brain-drain). What are the lessons for the euro-zone? For Greece’s recovery?
Speakers: Joaquín Almunia, Chairman of the Board of the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), and Honorary President of the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics
Kari Korhonen, Evaluation Manager & Senior Adviser to Secretary General, European Stability Mechanism
Discussants: Iain Begg, Professorial Research Fellow, European Institute, LSE
Gikas A. Hardouvelis, Professor of Finance and Economics, University of Piraeus, Greece
Elena Panaritis, Economist; Policy Innovator, Social Entrepreneur, Founder of Thought for Action
Chair: Kevin Featherstone, Director, Hellenic Observatory

Trust, Resilience and the Effectiveness of Government: lessons from the COVID crisis
Thursday, 3 December 2020, 18.30-20.00 (UK Time)/ 20.30-22.00 (GR Time)
Crises and wars have historically been drivers of political and economic change. Such moments create opportunities to reflect on the nature of the economic and political institutions in place and their capacities. This event will look at some emerging lessons of the COVID-19 crisis and directions of change and renewal. While the pandemic has unique features, many things that we have witnessed during the crisis reaffirm the importance of long-standing challenges that must be faced when building effective economies and polities.
Speaker: Sir Tim Besley, School Professor of Economics of Political Science; W. Arthur Lewis Professor of Development Economics, Department of Economics, LSE
Maria Petmesidou (DPhil Oxford University), Professor Emerita of Social Policy, Democritus University, Greece
Dimitri A. Sotiropoulos, Professor of Political Science, Department of Political Science and Public Administration, University of Athens
