4th HO PhD Symposium on Contemporary Greece and Cyprus

This blogger will have the pleasure to present a paper on 'British foreign policy towards the Greek junta, 1967-1974' at the 4th PhD symposium to take place 25-26 June under the aegis of the Hellenic Observatory of the London School of Economics and Political Science.

I had given a paper also at the 2nd PhD symposium back in 2005 (see panel and read paper here).
It was a wonderful experience and I am delighted to be a part of it once again this year.

CCBH conference

There's now been a change as regards the CCBH conference to take place in late June.
This blogger will present a paper on 'British foreign policy towards the Greek junta, 1970-1974', concentrating thus on the Conservative government's relations with the military regime in Athens.

Dr Effie Pedaliu will speak on the Wilson (Labour) government's policy towards the Greek Colonels, that is the period covering the years 1967-1970.
See also her well researched and well written
article on 'Human Rights ans Foreign Policy: Wilson and the Greek Dictators: 1967-1970' that appeared in Diplomacy & Statecraft.

Both papers will be presented on the same panel of the said conference, on the 25th of June 2009.
