1st Global Politics Online Summer Academy
“Is the Eastern Mediterranean Doomed to Instability? Prospects for Cooperation and Stability”
Monday 5th – Wednesday 7th July 2021
The Institute of Global Affairs of The American College of Greece
and the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ΕLIAMEP)
The modules offered during this intensive short-term program provide participants with a plethora of insights and different perspectives on the current security landscape of the Eastern Mediterranean. Special emphasis will be placed, among others: 1) on the new security threats and challenges in the broader Mediterranean region; 2) on the strategies adopted by major powers and international organizations for managing migration in the region; 3) on the evolution of the long-standing conflict between Greece and Turkey and the prospects for cooperation in an era of uncertainty and transformation; and 4) on the “Geopolitics of Energy” in the Eastern Mediterranean and its role in becoming a catalyst for cooperation and conflict resolution. An innovative part of the Summer Academy will be the “Ambassadors Forum”, a roundtable discussion between the Ambassadors of key-states in the region on the prerequisites for promoting stability in the Eastern Mediterranean.
