Greece – a nation with no dearth of history – is at an inflection point, looking to emerge after a crisis of historic proportions. The Eurozone, in a similarly precarious economic and political state, suffers from high unemployment, low inflation, structural issues and now a refugee crisis. The ongoing bailouts to avoid a potential Greek exit from the Eurozone also loom over investors. And yet, Greece has been held aloft in defiance of those who warned that the EU would crumble. Greece, it turns out, is a pivotal indicator of the state of health and recovery for Europe overall.
With engaging keynotes, debates and panel discussions, The Fletcher School convened one of the most timely Greek/Eurozone focused conferences on U.S. soil at a time when the country and the Eurozone is at an inflection point. It examined the fundamentals, strengths and vulnerabilities of Greece from the perspectives of politics, business, investment and the economy, society and international relations while exploring the implications for the future of the Eurozone.
