Now in its third year, the Greek debt crisis continues to pose a substantial threat for the stability of the Eurozone. Following the Council decision of 27 October 2011, Greece has entered negotiations with its private creditors for an orderly restructuring of its public debt, involving a sizeable ‘haircut’ under the so-called PSI-plus. This panel debate will draw on the expertise of some key market, policy and academic experts to address a range of issues concerning the current PSI negotiations and their implications for Greece the Eurozone at large, including: the legality and distribution of costs of the proposed PSI agreement; the viability and relevance of alternative proposals; the economic outlook of Greece following the prospective agreement; and the implications of the Greek PSI for the other ailing economies in the Eurozone and for economic governance in the Eurozone at large.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required; entry is on a first come first served basis.
