International Symposium “Crises and Multi-Level Governance”

Jun 6, 2024 | Events

Between May 29 and 31, 2024, the three-day international symposium on “Crises and Multi-Level Governance” was successfully held. The symposium was organized by the Department of Political Science in collaboration with the National Observatory of Athens, the Center for Democracy and Law Research of the University of Macedonia, and the Region of Crete. The symposium commenced on Wednesday, May 29, with a keynote speech by Professor Sabine Saurugger, Rector of Science Po Grenoble. In her very interesting speech titled “Crises, Universities and Governance in the Evolving European Knowledge Economy,” Professor Saurugger compared the French and European experiences, highlighting the challenges faced by the governance structures of European universities within the contemporary knowledge economy framework.

The symposium’s proceedings continued on Thursday, May 30, and Friday, May 31, spanning a total of five thematic sessions. The first session thoroughly discussed the recent crises faced by European health systems using very modern public policy analysis methodologies, such as the relationship between politics and the emotion of fear, the analysis of policy actor networking and their behavior in the public sphere, and public policy for pharmaceuticals.
