When & Where
The Constantine G. Karamanlis Chair in Hellenic and European Studies
The Constantine G. Karamanlis Chair in Hellenic and European Studies at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy is committed to promoting Hellenic and European studies in the United States while honoring a towering figure of Greece’s recent past.
The Chair’s endowment brings academic scholars to The Fletcher School and the Tufts University community, encouraging a renewed focus on modern Greece, Southeastern Europe, the Mediterranean and the European Union, and the crucial role these regions play in world politics.
The Chair also forges a strong bond between the Boston area European and Greek communities and members of academia whose interests lie in current Greek and European issues. Through this bond, many opportunities will arise to deconstruct negative stereotypes, overcome obstacles to cooperation, and create innovative ways to move forward, inspiring a more compassionate and peaceful global security.
The Chair was founded at the initiative of the Konstantinos G. Karamanlis Foundation in Athens, led by Ambassador Petros Molyviatis and Minister Ahilleas G. Karamanlis, and then Dean of The Fletcher School, General John Galvin, while its endowment has been supported by many friends of Constantine Karamanlis and the Fletcher and Tufts community.
