The start of the European debt crisis was marked by the bankruptcy of Lehman Brother Holdings Inc. in 2008. Since then it has been the subject  of 19 European Union summit meetings and has claimed seven government  leaders - and still hasn't run its course. The debacle has forced  Europeans to reconsider the role of shared institutions including the  European Central Bank and has given renewed strength of critics of the  common currency - while also giving more voice to those seeking  closer integration within Europe to boost economic growth. The  following is a chronology of the highs and lows of the past four years.
