Chaos to Anarchy? A new analysis of the Greek crisis – 8th June

Chaos to Anarchy? A new analysis of the Greek crisis

Monday 8th June 2015, 5:30-7:15pm, Hughes Hall – room TBC

Demetrius Floudas, Senior Member of Hughes Hall, will be speaking on the Greek Crisis, examining the significance and facts behind the headlines. 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.

Since 2010, Hughes Hall has hosted a series of annual public lectures, reviewing the evolution of the Eurozone sovereign debt crisis.

The lecture will be followed by a wine reception. All are warmly invited to attend this free event. RSVP to events@hughes.cam.ac.uk.
