The turbulence and drastic changes in the political economy of the region and the aftermath of the debt crises of some European countries have shaken the world and kick-started another round of global recession. Among all member states, Germany has emerged as one of the leaders in tackling this unprecedented economic crisis. In light of the current debt crises and the related upheaval, the Consul General of Germany will discuss the latest developments and prospects for the European Union from the German perspective.

This lecture series is co-organized by the General Education Unit and the European Studies Program. This is the second session of this lecture series on the future of the European Union, followed by a lecture of the Italian Consul-General in Hong Kong.

All are welcome.
