AHIF Releases Spring 2017 Issue of Online Policy Journal

WASHINGTON, DC—The American Hellenic Institute Foundation (AHIF) is pleased to announce the release of its eighth volume of its policy journal. The online journal is available gratis at AHIF Policy Journal website,

The policy journal of the American Hellenic Institute is a forum for commentary and scholarship on issues of vital importance to Greek Americans. In his introduction to the current issue, Editor Dan Georgakas writes of the pressing foreign policy issues facing the United States, Greece, and Cyprus.

Georgakas states, “A new administration has arrived in Washington during a perilous time in the Eastern Mediterranean. Turkey is rapidly moving toward a dictatorial government while simultaneously questioning legally established borders.  The challenges remain: the intransigence of an authoritarian Turkey, the continuing refugee crisis, the political quagmires in Syria and Iraq, the possibility of a Kurdish state, the persecution of non-Muslims in much of the Arab world, and jihadists able to mount terrorist actions in the West as well as in the Middle East.”

The issue’s first section is titled, “The Crisis in the Eastern Mediterranean.” Six essays discuss the crisis from a variety of perspectives. The five essays that follow take on broader issues that concern Greek America. In the “Emerging Voices of Greek America” section, young scholars and activists discuss the refugee crisis in Greece, gay rights in Greece, and the Pontian and Armenian genocides. Our two book reviews address the economic crisis in Greece and the some of the roots of the Cyprus conflict. Here is a list of the articles.
