Description

Bringing together some of the most distinguished students of contemporary Europe, the panel will examine the historical background, the more immediate causes, and the possible solutions to the current crisis in Europe. Were the critics of the Euro right, or were the current difficulties faced by the Euro unforeseen and unforeseeable? Is austerity really the solution to southern Europe’s structural economic problems? And will it, as George Soros has suggested, lead to a dark age of austere German hegemony?
