The Current Financial Crisis: Fall of the Berlin Wall 2.0?

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   ELIAMEP Blogs: Janis Emmanouilidis, Fall of the Berlin Wall 2.0 – Part 1 Key Political Effects of the Financial-Economic Crisis The former German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer has publicly speculated that the effects of the current financial crisis will be similar to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. This time, however, the consequences would not affect the East but rather the West. In times of severe crisis, like the one we are undisputedly experiencing at present, apocalyptic predictions come as no surprise. But is Joschka Fischer right or is his prognosis rather exaggerated? Janis A. Emmanouilidis is a political analyst, policy consultant, political scientist and currently Stavros Costopoulos Research Fellow at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ELIAMEP)

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)  Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (www.eliamep.gr) is involved in a wide range of activities and research programmes, which cover different aspects of European and foreign policy and other related fields.  ELIAMEP launches a new publication series, ELIAMEP Thesis. It will cover issues related to EU integration, to Europe’s role in global affairs and to important developments in international affairs. The new series will complement ELIAMEP’s Policy Papers, in an effort to produce short and timely analyses and recommendations on topical issues and current developments. In the first issue of ELIAMEP Thesis Janis A. Emmanouilidis, discusses the prospects for differentiated integration in an EU 27+. The author argues that the EU will require different paces, if the enlarged and politically, economically and geopolitically more heterogeneous EU wants to remain effective.
