She has taught and developed several courses in Management and Organizational Behavior, especially in Human Resource Management and Labor Relations, Entrepreneurship, and International Human Resource Management. Dr. Patra has experience as a Labor Mediator and Arbitrator, and as a Human Resource Professional in major organizations and consulting firms.

Dr. Patra is active in research, attending several seminars per year in her area of interest. She has published articles in international journals, authored chapters in books, and participated in international conferences. Previous research (published in 2012), includes: “Social Dialogue and Collective Bargaining in Times of Crisis: The Case of Greece”, published by the International Labour Organization, and “Current Situation and Future Trends of the Industrial Relations System and Trade Unions in Greece,” (with A. Nikolopoulos) published in the journal Management Revue.


The 2010 financial crisis in Greece and the consequent compliance by the Greek government to the memorandums signed with the Troika in exchange for a bailout, had a severe impact on Greek labor and employment relations. This paper examines the transformation of the industrial relations system in Greece during the first six years following the financial crisis. More specifically, it will examine recent trends in collective bargaining structures, i.e. new actors entering the collective bargaining scene, either by need of the represented industry or legislation. It will also analyze the changes in collective bargaining outcomes in terms of level and number of collective agreements, coverage rates, and content of agreements, including wage developments.

The paper was presented at the 11th European Regional Congress, organized by the International Labour and Employment Relations Association (ILERA), in Milano, 8-10 September, 2016.

Ambassadors Forum Lecture Series

A presentation on current developments in the Eastern Mediterranean region
 and Israeli-Greek relations by:
H.E. Mrs. Irit Ben-Abba Vitale
Ambassador of Israel to Greece

When: Tuesday, January 31, 13:40-15:00

Where: John S. Bailey Library, Upper Level

Organized by:
Institute of Diplomacy & Global Affairs – Office of Public Affairs
International Business Society


Israel was established 68 years ago. It has a population of 8.5 million, out of which 20% are non-Jews, Moslems, Christians, Druze and others, all of which are Israeli citizens. The Jewish population comprises of people who immigrated to the historical Land of Israel from all parts of the world, after 2000 years of exile. The challenges of social cohesion are immense. The security challenges are massive.

The Middle East geopolitical structure that was formed 100 years ago is collapsing, the Arab Spring did not bring a wave of democratic struggle to the region, but total collapse of the old regimes, and the total disintegration of state structures, giving way to the emergence of non-state entities that create a chaotic situation in our region, the repercussions of which affect whole of Europe.

Israel and Greece have enjoyed friendly bilateral relations in the last few years, that are a direct consequence of the fragile situation in the East Mediterranean. As democracies, we share common practices of social and political structure and, as countries of a long history of ancient civilizations, we appreciate the rule of law and prosperity to our people and nations.

On Tuesday,  January 31 2017, at 13:40-15:00, the Ambassador of Israel to Greece, Her Excellency Irit Ben-Abba, will deliver a speech on the challenges Israel is facing today, and on Israel-Greece relations as a stabilizing factor in the East Mediterranean.

Intelligent Language Teaching and Learning Technology

An open lecture by
Greg Kessler, PhD

When: Wednesday, February 8, 10:00–11:30

Where: 17b Ipitou Street, Plaka, Athens

Organized by: The Graduate Master Class Series, School of Graduate and Professional Education

To reserve your place, please contact Maria Kritikou via email: mkritikou@acg.edu or telephone: 210 6009800 ext. 1210.

Workshop Description

Dr. Kessler will share a number of recent developments related to language and technology, including: automated assessment tools, speech and gesture control interfaces, and a variety of forms of natural language processing.

Some of the tools and resources associated with these developments have found their way into the classroom while others certainly will in the near future.

Many of these developments have the potential to threaten or intimidate language instructors. The presenter will share thoughts about the need to embrace these developments as we move toward a new era of language instruction; one that is enhanced through the use of these intelligent assistants, yet one that still requires language instructors.
