Greek Think Tanks

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    Theodore Couloumbis, Untying the Middle East Gordian Knot, RealClearWorld, December 2008. In an article appearing at Real Clear World, Athens University professor emeritus of international relations and vice-president at the Hellenic Foundation for European and Foreign Policy (www.eliamep.gr), Theodore Couloumbis, together with coauthors Bill Ahlstrom and Gary Weaver reflect on the Middle East issue. Acknowledging the recent renewed interest in peace proposals, the authors begin by referring to the seeming intent of the new American Administration to engage anew in the negotiations process, however, not “without undercuts.” The authors argue that a solution of “two viable and mutually recognized states” is an advisable formula, the fruits of which, however, will not be reaped unless its use is combined with normalization of relations with other direct and indirect actors implicated. Once the territorial issues are resolved, the groundwork to consolidate prosperity in the region in the way Europe achieved it after WWII will have been laid. ELIAMEP Blogs: Theodore A.

Greek Think Tanks

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   Particular concerns of Greek think tanks include European issues and policies, as well as relations with Turkey, the Balkans and the East Mediterranean. The main Greek political parties have established research institutes, and there are some advocacy think tanks propagating free market, social democracy, and civil society development although most of the Greek think tanks are academic-style policy research institutes with nonpartisan orientation. Most of the Greek Think Tanks can be accessed through the web. A comprehensive list of their websites is offered at Secretariat General of Information “Greece – Links Library”: Greece – Links Library – Major Think Tanks
