Contribution to College Academic Life

The Institute of Diplomacy and Global Affairs of Deree – The American College of Greece aims to enhance the possibilities for Deree – ACG students to further dimensionalize and interact with ideas and perspectives on international affairs beyond the scope of their coursework.  For this purpose, special lectures can be organized, workshops with interested students can be coordinated and seminars can be conducted.  Credits can be awarded (in the future) on the basis of the College curriculum requirements and objectives.

Specific activities on selected policy themes can be defined for the purpose of testing students’ abilities to analyze and understand complex phenomena and produce papers synthesizing various aspects of today’s constantly shifting global environment. Here are some of the themes that could be incorporated in the various curricula or serve as the basis of public lectures, seminars or symposia; Eurasian Studies Workshop, East European Studies Program, West Balkans and Middle East Democratic Politics Center, Energy Security and International Markets Program, and Political Risk Analysis Workshop.
