Monday 8 June 2015 5:15 for 5:30pm

The Pavillion Room, Hughes Hall, Cambridge, CB1 2EW

  • Since 2010, Hughes Hall has hosted a series of annual public lectures, reviewing the evolution of the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis.
  • Demetrius Floudas, once again revisits the topic, which has been at the top of the agenda of political and economic analysts in previous months

In January 2015, Greece faced its most important general election of the last decades. Elections in this small country acquired an unexpected world-wide significance that is very rare in comparable situations. The results which brought the radical left Syriza party to power, represented the first electoral victory for such a political entity in post-war Europe.

This lecture intends to present an understandable overview of the current state of the Greek crisis, for everyone who may have felt overwhelmed by the masses of information disseminated so far. At the same time, it will follow with a new paradigm of analysis of a number of issues, based on analytical prediction models as well as the speaker’s own experience from his observations of the political undercurrents in Greece.

  • How likely is it that Greece will default? What will really happen if it does?
  • How will a Greek collapse affect the UK, Europe and the rest of the world?
  • Why did Greek voters reject the European bail-out in January 2015?
  • Is instability/riots/civil war a possible danger for the country?
  • What are the scenarios for the ‘day after’?

Demetrius Andreas Floudas has been a Special Adviser to the ‘Forum for Greece’ political think tank. In addition, he has provided commentary on the unfolding crisis in the country to Greek and international media (BBC, VoA, Russia Today) on numerous occasions . Demetrius Floudas is a Senior Member of Hughes Hall, Cambridge and a Fellow of the Hellenic Institute of International and Foreign Law.

The lecture will be followed by a wine reception
