Hellenic U.S. Alumni Association holds event on refugee crisis

More than 70 people attended the 1st event of the Hellenic U.S. Alumni Association on Friday, April 15th at ALBA Graduate Business School.

Four speakers – all of them past participants of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) – discussed the current status of the refugee/migration crisis, its implications on Europe at a political and economic level, and the various effects the crisis has had, especially for people in Greece. The discussion was moderated by Konstantina Botsiou, Associate Professor of Modern History and International Politics at the University of the Peloponnese.

The Hellenic U.S. Alumni is a dynamic and interactive community for past and current participants of U.S. government-sponsored exchange programs.
