​​The Greek economic and financial crisis of 2009-2012 threatened the future of the European economic and monetary union project that had been under construction since the end of World War II.  The crisis broke in 2009. An international rescue was organized in 2010 under the auspices of the International Monetary Fund and the European authorities. In 2011, creditors were called upon to grant substantial debt reduction in connection with a follow-on program. Charles Dallara played a central role in the negotiations.

Ted Truman (Research Fellow) will discuss the Greek crisis and debt restructuring on the basis of Dallara’s book Euroshock: How the Largest Debt Restructuring in History Helped Save Greece and Preserve the Eurozone.
Charles Dallara is Chairman of the Partners Group, USA. He was previously Managing Director of the Institute of International Finance (1993 to 2013), Managing Director of J.P. Morgan & Co, and served in high positions in the US Treasury (1976 to 1991) where Ted Truman worked closely with him. Dallara received his PhD from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
