Vivien Schmidt, Boston University, Pardee School of Global Studies

Vivien Schmidt, Professor of International Relations and Political Science at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, participated in this roundtable at Harvard University on  Sept. 1, 2015.

The topic discussed was Greece and the Euro Crisis: International Dimensions, with Harvard Professors Dani Rodrik, Peter A. Hall, and Michael Hertzfeld, along with Schmidt. The roundtable was held at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, as part of the orientation of this year’s Visiting Fellows program.

“I discussed the problems of democratic legitimacy in the European Union with regard to the Eurozone crisis generally, plus how these problems apply specifically in the case of the recent Greek crisis,” Schmidt said.

The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs is the largest international social science center within Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The Center is structured to encourage the highest practical level of personal and intellectual interaction among a diverse community of scholars and practitioners. Learn more about it here.
