Red Pepper seminar, Friday 17 February: ‘Taking on the technocrats’
Trevor Evans and Mary Kaldor to speak on alternative paths for a progressive, democratic Europe
7 February 2012
Throughout the economic crisis, EU leaders have acted decisively in the interest of finance: bailouts for banks and bondholders, austerity for citizens. This strategy has failed at almost every point, prolonging the economic downturn, increasing debts and generating a growing backlash. The response has been to entrench technocratic rule, and deepen the EU's democratic deficit.
At this Red Pepper seminar at the London School of Economics, Trevor Evans, Economic Professor at the Berlin School of Economics, and Professor Mary Kaldor, Director of Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit at LSE, will discuss alternative paths for a progressive, democratic Europe.
'Taking on the technocrats, paths towards a another Europe.'
Friday 17 February, 6.30pm, LSE, room 1.04, New Academic Building (map)
