Title: "The Future of the EU & the Eurozone"
The European project has been going through a rough period in recent times. From an economic perspective, we had the sovereign debt crisis of a number of Eurozone's periphery countries, with fiscal imbalances, rising unemployment, deflation, and low levels of growth. From a political standpoint, we have witnessed the rise of nationalism and far-right movements as well as a strong anti-immigrant sentiment. The first break-up of the EU came last summer with the Brexit vote in the UK referendum. Will more break-ups follow?  Is there a future in the European project? Will it fall apart?How will Brexit affect the rest of Europe? Why EU leaders are incapable in addressing the rising economic and political problems of the Union? The panel discussion will address the above (and more) related questions about the problems faced and the overall future of Europe.

The lecture is sponsored by the Hellenic Bank
