The Symposium will showcase the research and work of the Greek and Greek- Canadian academic community in Ontario and aims to strengthen the links between the academic community and the public.

The final agenda of the Symposium includes four sessions with presentations from 17 faculty members of Ontario academic institutions covering various disciplines, as well as one session with graduate student presentations (please look at me for themes, titles and abstracts).

His talk will be on “The global economic crisis of 2008 and the battle of economic ideas”.
