Young Greeks and the crisis: the danger of losing a generation

My latest policy paper for the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung in Germany. I was asked to examine the problems that the economic crisis is causing for Greeks in their 20s.

Beyond dangerously high levels of unemployment, others issues such as a growing brain drain, an absence of political expression and the lack of opportunities for entrepreneurship have to be tackled quickly and imaginatively if Greece is to avoid scarring a well-educated and talented generation.
