Examining several European nations and above all what happened in Greece, this seminar will shed light on the political, economic and social repercussions of the Eurozone crisis and subsequent programmes of domestic austerity. What impact did such an approach have on Greek society? What measures can be taken nationally and internationally in order to strengthen Greece, and thereby Europe?
