Greece and its New Geopolitical Challenges: which way forward?
Thursday 5 November 2020, 17.00-18.30 (UK Time)/ 19:00- 20:30 (GR Time)

With changes in the European Union, uncertainties in the Atlantic Alliance, opportunities and threats in the eastern Mediterranean, and instability in the Middle East, Greece currently faces a challenging external environment. How should it respond? How can it best promote its interests and overcome constraints? What can its partners expect from Greece? What does Greece require of them? Professor Kevin Featherstone will be in conversation with Nikos Dendias, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Hellenic Republic, to explore Greece’s strategy in this new and complex phase of foreign policy.

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
