Klaus Larres

This lecture is presented as part of the “Humanities in Action” series organized by the Program in the Humanities at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Wonder what’s happening in Greece these days? Or how the Euro, once lauded as a cornerstone of continent-wide stability, has become a source of contention? Join Klaus Larres as he discusses the vision and history that shaped post-war attempts to bring European nations into closer political and economic cooperation. This lecture will explore the promise of institutions such as the European Union, while exposing the inherent contradictions in imposing supranational policies on individual nations.

Larres is the Richard M. Krasno Distinguished Professor of History and International Affairs at UNC.
