Recorded on 15 May 2014 at Old Theatre, Old Building
The event is organised by the Hellenic Observatory, LSE and the Hellenic Bankers Association, UK in the framework of the Hellenic Presidency of the EU Council. After the emergency actions taken at the height of the euro-crisis, serious attention has focussed on how the ‘bail-out’ states can return to growth on a sustainable and socially-inclusive basis. In part, this will depend on whether Europe has the right policies in place. A crucial dimension is also that of how Europe can best support reform in the bail-out states: are they receiving the right mix of support? How should external leverage be applied? And what is the best domestic strategy for the bail-out states themselves? Are they doing enough? The panel will address both the European and the national agendas, focussing on the Greek case in particular.
