[EUC] Brief economic history of Europe since 1918

16 OCTOBER 2013 — Analyse history to understand the present: in economy, as in other disciplines, past events can help explain today’s issues and situation. 


In light of economic theory, Dr Ivan Pastine from University College Dublin will show how some events led to the eventual creation of the European Central Bank and Germany’s outsized influence on monetary policy in the European Union.


In his open lecture on Friday, 18 October at Peking University, he will focus on two episodes in particular which have shaped the current structure of the European economy: the currency wars of the 1930s and the recurring exchange rate realignments in the 80s and 90s.


The activity is part of the course in European Studies given in collaboration between the European University Centre, the School of Government and the Centre for European Studies at Peking University, with lecturers coming from Peking University, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Autonomous University of Madrid, Lund University, University College Dublin and University College London.


18 October, Peking University, Leo KoGuan Building, Room 515, 15:10-18:00

The event is open to the public.


The next lecture will be on Friday, 25 October, with Prof. José Luis Colomer from Autonomous University of Madrid presenting “From Religious Toleration to Moral Toleration: An Idea still Challenging European Thinking”.
