Ronald Meinardus, Senior Research Fellow and Coordinator of Research Projects on Greek-German Relations at ELIAMEP, took center stage as the main speaker at the widely attended online seminar series “Grab a Greek Coffee,” organized by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) in Athens on February 20, 2024. Under the title “Berlin’s Diplomatic Role in Greek-Turkish Relations,” this virtual gathering served as a platform for Dr. Meinardus to expound upon and engage in discourse surrounding the insights from his recent policy paper titled “Bridging Divides: Berlin’s Diplomatic Role in Greek-Turkish Relations,” with an audience of international experts and policymakers.

Highlighting the significance of his research, Dr. Meinardus remarked, “This is an underexposed and underreported aspect of Greek-Turkish relations,” emphasizing Berlin’s emergent prominence as a key influencer in Greek-Turkish politics.
