Rethinking Europe 05
In 2016 and until this summer, we continue with our Rethinking Europe series. A series of lectures that, starting from the Greek crisis, aims to refocus the discussion on Europe’s future. Tackling the economic crisis in Greece reflects more comprehensive strategies for Europe. Thus, we bring together influential intellectuals from Europe and the USA to reflect on the consequences of the prevailing hegemonial politics and to rethink a social and political project for Europe.
