Award Details
Award Activity

Reacting to economic upheaval: a comparative analysis of Greece, Iceland, and the U.S. in the post-2008 era.

The crash of 2008 had wide-ranging effects on Greece, Iceland and the U.S., which each faced their own challenges based on different political, economic and societal realities. Each country had its own unique responses to the crisis, but there are lessons to be learned from comparing policy responses – legal, economic and/or societal.

The grantee will do comparative research based on his or her area of expertise and also look forward to the lessons to be learned, not only by these three countries but with reference to the wider international community in terms of future policymaking. Grantees may build on existing research that has already been done in the aftermath of the 2008 crash but should undertake original research that adds to the current academic debate in a meaningful way. Publication and wide dissemination of results are expected as a result of the grant.

Scholars selected for this award will be required to:
  • Conduct a research project of the applicant’s choosing
