SNFDialogues Webcast – The Butterfly Effect: Entangled Geopolitics

September 24, 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.

Participants in the “The Butterfly Effect: Entangled Geopolitics” webcast:

  • Constantinos FilisExecutive Director of Institute of International Relations
  • Brady Kiesling, Author and former U.S. diplomat
  • Katerina Sokou, Washington DC Correspondent/ Nonresident Senior Fellow, Atlantic Council
  • Dr. 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
A video interview of Tara VarmaHead of office & Policy Fellow European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), will be streamed during the discussion.
