Greece: The Day After - A Dukakis Lecture by Jean Quatremer
The Dukakis Center for Public Service will host the distinguished French journalist Jean Quatremer for a Dukakis Lecture on Friday, November 20, at 7 PM at the Municipal Council of Thessaloniki. The event will be co-sponsored by the French Institute of Thessaloniki and TV100, with further support from the Consulate General of France in Thessaloniki and the Journalists' Union of Macedonia & Thrace Daily Newspapers.
Jean Quatremer is EU correspondent for the French daily Libération and the author of the blog, "Coulisses de Bruxelles" ("Brussels' Corridors"). He covers issues relating to immigration and, broadly, to law. He is also an essayist and documentarian, having recently produced a documentary film for French television on the Greek referendum of July 2015, which will be the subject of his Thessaloniki lecture.
M. Quatremer's lecture will be moderated by Filios Stangos, former ERT Brussels correspondent and current General Director of TV100. M. Quatremer will speak in French, while simultaneous translation into Greek will be available.
Established originally as an endowed chair, the Dukakis Center is the premier private, independent think tank in Greece, unique in Southern Europe for its focus on citizen engagement. The Dukakis Center is one of three dedicated outreach centers at the American College of Thessaloniki, and is the standard bearer for Anatolia’s century-long commitment to civic and social responsibility.
The Dukakis Center contributes specialized undergraduate and post-graduate training and instruction in support of ACT’s academic programs, offers opportunities for project-based internships and experiential learning, carries out applied research in select policy areas, and hosts events and public service initiatives for the benefit of the larger communities of Thessaloniki and Northern Greece.
