Celebrating 25 years of the Hellenic Observatory at LSE, the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and LSE’s Kevin Featherstone discuss the challenges facing Greece and Europe.
Is Greece on the path to a sustained economic recovery? How substantive have the reforms been? With elections due next year, and with recent controversies, political stability seems at a premium. What vision does the PM have for Greece? And, how are the geopolitics of the region changing? Where does Greece stand on the new issues facing a changing Europe?
