SNF DIALOGUES Webcast – The Butterfly Effect: Entangled Geopolitics

September 14, 2020

ATHENS — Just a few hours after Joe Biden and Donald Trump take the stage for the first debate in the U.S. presidential election, the SNF DIALOGUES will meet to discuss the new global geopolitical balances of a multipolar world.

It’s a world in which a casual remark at a podium in Ohio can have real consequences for people in Greece, the position of a ship in the Mediterranean can influence the shape of European relations, and the business decisions of individual companies in China can propel U.S. political movements.

The Butterfly Effect: Entangled Geopolitics," the next DIALOGUES webcast, will stream live at snfdialogues.org on September 30 at 9:00 a.m. (GMT+3). The wide-ranging discussion will cover the showdown for the American presidency, flaring tensions between Greece and Turkey in the Southeastern Mediterranean, and economic brinksmanship between the U.S. and China. In the midst of a pandemic that has left little oxygen for other stories, the speakers will refocus our attention on local developments that may soon have enormous consequences around our interconnected world.

The participants in the webcast "The Butterfly Effect: Entangled Geopolitics" are:

– Constantinos Filis, Executive Director of Institute of International Relations

– George Tzogopoulos, Senior Fellow at BESA and ELIAMEP, Director of EU-China Programmes at CIFE, Lecturer in International Relations at the Democritus University of Thrace

Watch the DIALOGUES webcast, open and free to all, and register at:snfdialogues.org

The DIALOGUES are curated and moderated by Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.
