June at the Hellenic Observatory

18th Hellenic Observatory Annual Lecture
Migration Crisis and its Impact for Europe
Tuesday 22 June 2021, 13:00-14:30 (UK) / 15:00-16:30 (GR)

Greece has been at the epicentre of much of the migration crisis in the Mediterranean. The accommodation and processing of asylum-seekers and refugees in Greece has proved both challenging and controversial. But there are also major implications of the crisis for the European Union and its individual member states in their burden-sharing. What are the lessons from this humanitarian crisis on Europe’s shores? We explore the ways forward.

Speaker: Notis Mitarachi, Minister of Migration & Asylum of the Hellenic Republic
Discussant: Maria Gavouneli, Associate Professor of International Law, Faculty of Law, National & Kapodistrian University of Athens
Chair: Kevin Featherstone, Eleftherios Venizelos Professor in Contemporary Greek Studies and Professor in European Politics; Hellenic Observatory Director

The Greek War of Independence: re-appraising its economic legacies
Thursday 24 June 2021, 16:00-17:30 (UK)/ 18:00-19:30 (GR)

How far may the economic problems of the modern Greek state be attributed to the nature of its origins? It’s small, albeit enlarging, size; the lack of popular trust in public institutions and authority; the recourse to patrons and to ‘rent-seeking’; and, its own vulnerability to external powers: are these path-dependent features that overwhelm the scope for change?
This panel will discuss the inheritance of 1821 for the course of development taken by modern Greece and how it has structured options and choices. When, and how, has or might such historical determinism be overcome?
