This research fellowship was created in 2007, with support from the J.F.Costopoulos Foundation. Through its establishment ELIAMEP sought to upgrade its research on traditional foreign policy issues, such as the European integration, Greek-Turkish relations, developments in the Middle East and the Balkans or transatlantic relation. At the same time, this new post furthered ELIAMEP’s efforts to create a supportive environment for the development of Greece’s research potential.
