Tinos Summer Seminar July 4 – July 9, 2015

 

ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SEMINAR
Eastern Mediterranean: Regional Dynamics, Global Trends

Cultural foundation of Tinos (www.itip.gr)
TINOS, JULY 4-9, 2015

CONCEPT

Τhe Institute of International Relations (I.I.R.) of Panteion University of Athens in cooperation with the University of Piraeus, is pleased to announce the 24rd Annual Summer Seminar which will be held on the island of Tinos, Greece, from July 4-9, 2015. The theme of the Seminar is:Eastern Mediterranean: Regional Dynamics, Global Trends.

With the state of affairs in many global issues in a critical state of flux – and depending on how things evolve – the international community may have to face even greater instability/volatility than it has in recent years. At a time when synergies and cooperation are vital to confronting dire challenges with potentially far-reaching impacts, key players are finding it difficult to compromise. In this context, the Eastern Mediterranean, which borders on numerous crisis hotspots, has yet to tackle its own “internal” issues, and divisions are deepening.

For the third consecutive year, the Tinos Summer Seminar will focus on the Eastern Mediterranean, but at the same time we will attempt a consideration of regional dynamics within a broader framework. In two 2-hour sessions, LSE Professor Michael Cox will set out the global trends – assessing how U.S.-EU-Russian-Chinese relations are evolving and affecting the wider periphery – and provide an analysis of European economic affairs.

To ensure interaction among participants and to give attendants more time to exchange views with specialists and academics, and so that the latter can provide an in-depth analysis in their subject areas, all of this year’s presentations will be provided by individual lecturers, in a seminar format. To help attendants better prepare, in the coming weeks we will be sending suggested reading lists on behalf of the professors/lecturers.

At the end of each Seminar, relevant materials will be distributed and a blog will be activated, allowing attendants to post articles, lectures, events, and updates from the agencies they represent, and enabling them to keep in touch and exchange views, building on an alumni legacy that will incorporate attendants in the coming years.

Fees
Tuition fees have been waved. There is only a lump sum of 400 € that covers:

a) shared hotel accommodation in a double occupancy room,
b) breakfast and dinner in local taverns,
c) excursion to two traditional villages and the local marble-crafting museum.
d) transportation from Athens to Tinos and back.

All participants are expected to pay for their own travel to and from Athens.
