What precisely is the Greek government’s mandate?

Kira Gartzou, research assistant in European Studies, analyses the differences in views expressed by Syriza towards Europe, and in particular Germany, during its winning electoral campaign, and the views now portrayed in Syriza’s party newspaper since coming to power in January 2015. What implications may this have for the future of Greek negotiations with creditor institutions, and what is actually the mandate of the Greek government?

Extremism disenchanted: what role can education play?

Young people in the UK today who are attracted to extremism are typically well educated. Given the weaknesses of this ideology in terms of its use of history, internal coherence of arguments and moral standards, its success with many educated young people requires explanation. The explanation, according to Dr. Farid, is multifaceted but education has a big role to play in curbing the trend.

Austerity is Working

Is the EU policy of austerity working? What are the dynamics between a socialist France and a right-wing Germany, and which vision will and should win the battle for the European economic paradigm? What can Ireland, Portugal, Greece and Spain teach us?

This debate on one of the most fundamental questions of current European politics will seek to foster an exchange of ideas pertaining to the Eurozone and economic crises, as well as the future of the continent in light of the challenges at hand and ahead.

For the proposition: Professor Dustmann (Economics)
Against the proposition: Professor Marliere (ESPS)
Chair: Dr. Chelotti (SPP)

This event is organised by UCLU’s European Society with the kind support of the European Institute.
