Organized by: The Institute of Global Affairs of the American College of Greece and the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (ΕLIAMEP)

Athens, 30 June – 3 July 2020

(Deadline: April 24)

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 emanating in the broader Mediterranean region; 2) on the strategies adopted by state actors 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 instead of amplifying existing conflicts and triggering new ones. Moreover, the “Ambassadors Forum” will close the series of lectures with a roundtable discussion between the Ambassadors of certain key-states in the region (USA, Greece, Israel, and Cyprus) on the prerequisites for promoting stability in the Eastern Mediterranean.
