In-depth discussions on the Greek Revolution Bicentennial will focus on how one must deal with, and process, the shared past in order to create a collective future.
A key topic will be “An account of two centuries of existence.”
Other sessions will focus on the following:
An in-depth view on the Eastern Mediterranean and the scramble that is underway between countries in the region for access to recently-discovered gas fields.
A discussion about how the COVID-19 Pandemic is reshaping the world trade landscape and what to do about it.
The Future of Europe: Can Europe find its place amongst the hegemonies of US and China and balance the strenuous relationship with Russia and Turkey, while reforming European foreign, security, and migration policy?
A review on renewable energy resources as an antidote to climate change.
Discussions about a fair and growth-oriented distribution of wealth and the role the state should play in such an arrangement are taken to the forefront of public debate.
Technology and the future of growth: panel discussions will focus on what is at stake, why technological change has pushed income inequality higher and generated fears about a “robocalypse” (massive job losses from automation), and why this should not cause despair.
