We plan to organize a workshop and a conference on the causes and consequences of debt and financial crises in modern Greece.
We invite contributions from macroeconomists and economic historians that would help shed more light on the following issues: 1. The main causes of debt and financial crises in the 19th, the 20th and the 21st centuries. We shall focus on the crises of 1893, 1932 and 2010 and shall concentrate on both domestic and international causes. 2. The response to the crises, in the form of the imposition of internationally controlled programs of adjustment of fiscal and monetary policy in Greece. 3. The results of these programs in terms of the ability of the country to service its debt and the resulting output loss (and unemployment). 4. The time span and the conditions under which Greece eventually returned to international capital markets. 5. The role of international institutions and the international monetary system.
We plan to hold an initial one day workshop in October/November 2014 and a final conference in the spring of 2015. The proceeds of the final conference will be published in a special volume in English and/or Greek. Interested researchers are invited to submit proposals for papers by 1 July 2014.Although the main focus is on Greece, we also welcome contributions from scholars working on other countries . Proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
