Good Europe: What is the purpose of the European Union in the 21st century?
18:30-20:00, Sunday 21 February 2016
Sheikh Zayed Theatre, London School of Economics
Speakers: Yanis Varoufakis, Caroline Lucas, Zoe Williams
Chair: Mary Kaldor
The creation of the EU set the direction for peace and trade in the 20th century. It is failing to adequately respond to the huge crises we now face, from Syria to Greece, refugees to austerity, and climate change. Please join us as we ask what is the purpose of the EU in the 21st century? We will explore how it can meet the demands for social justice, democracy and sustainability as part of a vision for a good Europe.
Yanis Varoufakis: academic, economist and former Syriza Finance Minister of Greece
