AHIF is pleased to bring the Spring 2015 Issue of the AHIF Online Policy Journal

WASHINGTON, DC—The American Hellenic Institute Foundation (AHIF) announces the sixth volume release of its Spring 2015 Online Policy Journal.

“With this issue, we again seek to enhance the quality of American foreign policy regarding the eastern Mediterranean, particularly Greece and Cyprus. Our essayists combine historic analysis with recent events and place them in broad cultural contexts,” said Dan Georgakas, editor of the Online Policy journal and Director of the Greek American Studies Project, Center for Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies, Queens College (CUNY). “We believe key factors in enriching American policies are the activities of the Greek community and its allies, and we seek to empower them in whatever way we can. We think it especially important to work with Greek Americans still at the onset of their careers. In all our endeavors, we advocate the need for a commitment to the principle of Rule by Law coupled with a commitment to rendering an authentic historic record stripped of ethnocentric bias.”

In addition to the Foreword by Mr. Georgakas, the AHIF Online Policy Journal provides expert commentary and analysis. Here is a list of the articles.
