Mission and Objectives

ELIAMEP is an independent, policy-oriented, non-profit research institute. It serves as a forum for the study and understanding of issues relating to foreign and security policy, European affairs and international relations. It functions as a forum of debate on international issues, as an information center, as well as a point of contact for experts and policymakers. ELIAMEP conducts a number of research programs that combine specific needs and interests of policymakers with the Foundation's own agenda. Important subjects for research at ELIAMEP include European integration; the evolution of European and regional organizations; transatlantic relations; political, economic and military developments in Southeastern Europe, the Black Sea area, the Caucasus, the wider Mediterranean and Middle East region, as well as Greek-Turkish relations and Cyprus.

Main Projects / Activities

In recent years, ELIAMEP has coordinated or participated in a number of European research consortia (funded principally within FP5 and FP6).
ELIAMEP also organizes several major international conferences and workshops every year addressing issues of direct concern to ELIAMEP’s audience. The other aspects of its activities relate to training. The Halki International Seminars (HIS), represent the core of ELIAMEP’s training activities for young leaders, held since 1990.
Publications comprise a substantial part of the Foundation's work as more than 160 books, seminar and conference proceedings, working papers and monographs (in Greek and English) have been published since 1988.
