Event Description

The financial and economic crisis hit Europe with full force at the end of the last decade. Overcoming this crisis is  one  of  the  biggest  challenges  the European Union has faced since its establishment.  Although there are signs of improvement visible in many areas, including economic growth and financial stabilisation, some of  the  effects  of  the  recession  – especially  the  high rates of unemployment  –  present a serious  political  and  social problem in Europe. 

The  situation  has  fed  fear  and  mistrust  of  the institutions amongst the electorate  and  has led to  the rise  of  Eurosceptic groups  and  parties  throughout the  EU.  The impact of these developments will be felt in the European elections on 25 May. In the event of a strong voter backlash the European Community, as well as the principle of solidarity, will be weakened.

In light of these considerations the Martens Centre invites you to a conference organised in association with HSS to discuss ‘Unemployment & Electoral Choice – the Greek Experience’

Conference language: Greek and English.
