AHIF Releases Spring 2016 Issue of its Online Policy Journal

WASHINGTON, DC —The American Hellenic Institute Foundation (AHIF) announces the sixth volume release of its Spring 2016 Online Policy Journal.

The policy journal of the American Hellenic Institute is a forum for commentary and scholarship on issues of vital importance to Greek Americans. This particular issue probes recent developments in Cyprus, the historical atrocities committed by Turkey, and the dynamics of Greek America. Our contributors do not propose prescriptive agendas for others to follow but perspectives to be considered when planning activities regarding the foreign and domestic policies most relevant to Greek Americans.

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