2009 Public Dialogue

                                                  Progressive Governance:
                                   Greece and the New International Order

George A. Papandreou


Date Monday, 27 April 2009
Time 6:45
Venue Old Theatre, Old Building, LSE
Chair Professor Kevin Featherstone, Hellenic Observatory Director, LSE

The Hellenic Observatory hosted a dialogue with Mr George A. Papandreou, President of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) and President of Socialist International on Monday 27th April 2009 at 18.45 at the LSE.

George A. Papandreou is president of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) and president of Socialist International. He was minister of foreign affairs from 1999 to 2004, a period that saw inter alia a new rapprochement with Turkey. He has served as minister for national education and religious affairs on two occasions (1988-89; 1994-96). He is the son and grandson of two Greek prime ministers. In 2006 he became president of the Socialist International. The latter has given him a privileged perspective on the challenges to social democracy internationally.

Combining these responsibilities, he will address the twin themes of domestic and international governance. He outlined how he believes Greece needs to reform its own politics and governance and he will place this in the context of the current challenges to the international economic order.
