event info
Date Thursday, 13 November 2008
Time 18:30 - 20:00
Venue Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE
Chair Professor Kevin Featherstone, Hellenic Observatory Director, LSE

The 9th Annual Lecture of the Hellenic Observatory was given by George Alogoskoufis, then Minister of Economy and Finance. Professor Alogoskoufis is a distinguished alumnus of the LSE, having obtained both his MSc and PhD in Economics from the School.

Professor Alogoskoufis entitled his lecture, ‘Europe in the Global Economy’. He examined recent economic trends and assessed the sustainability of current policy models in the context of continuing globalisation and the recent worldwide economic turmoil.

The lecture was held in a packed Old Theatre on 13 November 2008. Unfortunately, the lecture was interrupted by a small group of demonstrators. Their protest had nothing to do with the lecture or the Minister’s responsibilities. Later security checks suggested that the leaders of the protest did not belong to the LSE. We are grateful to Professor Alogoskoufis for continuing with his lecture. A reception and dinner followed.
