A brief description of the lecture topic is provided below.

The seminar will begin with a brief recount of the court proceedings and the legal disputes. An attempt will be made to provide a historical explanation of the phenomenon that is “Golden Dawn” and an appraisal of the judicial verdict. Has Golden Dawn exited the political landscape? Can Golden Dawn reappear? What are the prospects of the Far Right in Greece under conditions where a health, economic and geopolitical crisis prevails? Can the system of government be safeguarded from it? Can Europe cope?
