A little reminder

Published on by

Today, May 9th, is Europe Day. Each year it is the day we celebrate peace and unity in Europe. I believe that, on such an occasion, it is worth reminding ourselves of the European Union’s motto, United in Diversity. Diversity is one of the foundations and core values of universities. They share these core values […]

Η Ελλάδα είναι υποχρεωμένη να αιτηθεί βοήθεια από το ΔΝΤ

Published on by

Συνεπώς, η Ελληνική κυβέρνηση δεν δύναται να αντιμετωπίζει ως επιλογή το αίτημα προς το ΔΝΤ, το οποίο είχε ήδη από το 2012 καταστεί νομική υποχρέωση. Παρά ταύτα, στην περίπτωση που το ΔΝΤ απορρίψει το αίτημα της Ελλάδας, τότε το πρόγραμμα του ΕΜΣ δύναται και να υπάρξει μόνο του.

If the Commission were to consider them as separate, then taken together they would be free to spend as […]

Sir Adrian Montague, CBE, the company’s new chairman, was answering a shareholder’s question about the board’s view on the EU referendum. At first he gave a guarded response. “I am not […]

Austerity, impact and divided Europe of Knowledge

Published on by

Inga Ulnicane ‘Crisis should not be wasted’. Since the beginning of the global economic crisis in 2008, this idea has been repeated many times suggesting that crisis should rather be used as an opportunity for innovative solutions and necessary reforms. One of such potential changes emphasized by European institutions has been prioritization of research and […]

Is the IMF necessary for the 3rd Greek Program?

Published on by

The legal provisions do not not commit the IMF to accepting the request of the Eurozone Member State concerned; in this case Greece. However, on the EU’s side, it seems necessary for a Eurozone Member State that receives financial assistance through the ESM to request similar assistance from the IMF. In either case, Greece already […]

The problem with Brexit

Published on by

A straightforward comparison between Britain remaining in the EU and leaving isn’t possible. That’s because we know what ‘Remain’ in the EU means – it’s the status quo and we’ve experienced it for four decades. But Leave? Nobody knows; nobody can say for sure. Even those campaigning for Britain to leave the European Union cannot […]
