Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
The current economic crisis that affects Europe, much deeper in the South has behind it bigger problems than purely economic. In this thesis, we advocate the existence of a crisis of leadership within the economic one, that somehow prevents nations from continue and escape from the crisis, since the solutions given are purely economic and not fix the hidden problems.We advocate for change in the form of lead as a strong support to find a solution. A better leadership from our governments is a support to overcome the crisis.In order to achieve this, in the first part of the thesis will explore the Crisis of leadership, its causes and implications, seeing his negative side. In the second we will focus on exploring the current leadership failures and how an improvement of this can be crucial to overcome the crisis. Readers will see the positive side of the crisis as an opportunity for change in leadership. In this way, we end up venturing into the new generation of leaders, the impact of the crisis in youth and why we do believe that they can get the good side of this situation.
