His expertise has been recognised by the President of Greece awarding him one of Greece’s highest honours (‘Order of the Phoenix’) in 2013 and by the European Parliament selecting one of his books for its all-time list of ‘The 100 Books on Europe to Remember’ in 2014.  He is an elected Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in the UK.

Kevin has published widely on Europe and on Greece.  His, ‘Road to Maastricht: Negotiating EMU’ (Oxford 1998), co-authored with Kenneth Dyson, was widely praised.  More recent books have focussed on the problems of structural reform in Greece and Greece’s long-term relationship with Europe.  He is currently writing a new book on the internal dysfunctionalities of government administration in Greece (Oxford, forthcoming).
