Join SIPA faculty and guests for our Gabriel Silver Memorial Lecture featuring visiting scholar George Papandreou, Prime Minister of Greece from October 2009 to November 2011. The event will be followed by a brief reception.
George A. Papandreou was selected as one of Foreign Policymagazine’s Top 100 Global Thinkers in 2010 for “making the best of Greece’s worst year.” He previously held government posts including undersecretary of culture, minister of education, and, from 1999 to 2004, foreign minister.
Papandreou has received several honors for his work to promote peace and democracy and to fight racism efforts highlighted by his successful campaign, as foreign minister, to engineer a rapprochement between Greece and Turkey.
