In response to the biggest economic and financial crisis since the 1930’s, EUCE York has teamed with the Critical Research Laboratory in Law & Society at Osgoode Hall Law School to present a new lecture series entitled “Whose (De)Fault is it Anyway? – The EU Crisis in Historical and Comparative Perspective”. This series will run through the 2011-12 academic year and explore the intimidating dimensions of the crisis from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including financial and economic history, political theory and European integration.

The inaugural lecture in the series was given by Prof. Michalis Psalidopoulos, the Constantine Karamanlis Chair in Hellenic and Southeastern European Studies in The Fletcher School of Diplomacy at Tufts University, Boston on Thursday, December 1st, 2011. Entitled “Financial Crises in History: Any Relevance for Greece?”, the lecture provides an historical overview of economic crises from 1500 to the present in an attempt to provide a sense of scale for current events before turning to the specifics of the current Greek case.
