  • “Challenging the Rule of Troika, Transforming Europe”

  • 25 Jun 14
  • On 10 March 2014, Dublin City University hosted a conference, co-organised with transform!europe, to investigate the effects of troika rule in the four countries subjected to IMF-ECB-EU programmes (Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Cyprus), while also looking at those countries hovering on the edge of such programmes, such as Spain.

    Economists and politicians from these countries came together to analyse, not only what had happened, but also to deliberate on what the Left can make to happen to turn this around in the interests of working people who have suffered so grievously during this crisis.

    The keynote address was given by Alexis Tsipras, which inspired a sense of a European Left gathering strength and momentum.
