CONFERENCE- Greece: Modernisation and Europe 20 years on
Fri 25 November 2016, 09:00 – 20:00 GMT
Greece: Modernisation and Europe 20 years on
Organised by the Hellenic Observatory, LSE
Drawing on the conference organised at the European Institute of LSE in November 1994, this retrospective conference asks participants to reflect on the modernisation of Greece, particularly over the past two decades. Panellists will focus on, among other topics, Greek public administration and the relevance of the 'modernisation' concept; the successes and failures of Greece’s economic modernisation programme over the last two decades; and the evolution of the Greek welfare state and social policy.
Is modernisation still relevant to Greece in times of crisis? This and other questions will shape the discussion, as we ask experts in and of Greece to reflect on the topic in relation to their own research.
