LSE Hellenic Observatory Public Lecture – Megaron Karatza, Athens, Greece

On Thursday, 17 January 2019 Effie Fokas participated in this highly interesting event hosted by the London School of Economics’ Hellenic Observatory and chaired by Kevin Featherstone at the Megaron Karatza in Athens. The main talk by Michael Bruter, and consequent discussion by Effie Fokas, explored the nature of European identity and assessed how widespread it is and what it means to citizens. It also discussed the consequences of European identity on European solidarity, on the split of European societies, and on the transforming nature of protest and Euroscepticism across our continent.
