This lecture will address the austerity measures introduced in Greece following the intervention of the 'Troika'.
Professor Ewing will examine some of the changes introduced in the light of the financial crisis and consider their legality in the light of the obligations of the Greek government under the Greek Constitution, and the European Convention on Human Rights. He will also comment on the legality of the conduct of the EU institutions and the compatibility of their conduct with the EU Treaty.

Before then he worked at the universities of Edinburgh (1978–83) and Cambridge (1983–89) and has also held visiting positions at various institutions overseas, including the universities of Sydney and Queensland. He is the President of the Institute of Employment Rights (a trade union funded think tank), and Vice President of the International Centre of Trade Union Rights.
The Ithacan Philanthropic Society
Level 2, 329 Elizabeth Street
In October 1916, the Ithacan migrants of Melbourne established the ITHACAN PHILANTHROPIC SOCIETY "The Ulysses", with an inaugural membership of some 153 members. This was in response to pleas for aid from their loved ones in Ithaca who were suffering deprivation during the First World War.
Over the years, however, the Society has been much more than just a philanthropic institution. It has been a constant in the lives of the early Ithacan migrants replacing the homeland which they had left.
The Society takes an active role in the cultural, social, educational and quality of life interests of the Ithacan Community. The Society, as part of its philanthropic role, also makes many monetary contributions to worthy causes, including those outside the immediate Ithacan community. The Society celebrated its 90th Anniversary in 2006.
