The Greek War of Independence: re-appraising its economic legacies

The Greek War of Independence: re-appraising its economic legacies
Date: Thursday 24 June 2021
Details: How far may the economic problems of the modern Greek state be attributed to the nature of its origins? It’s small, albeit enlarging, size; the lack of popular trust in public institutions and authority; the recourse to patrons and to ‘rent-seeking’; and, its own vulnerability to external powers: are these path-dependent features that overwhelm the scope for change?
With Dr Maria Christina Chatziioannou, Dr Andreas Kakridis and Prof Stathis Kalyvas
Chair: Prof Joan R. Rosés
