Live Streamed Seminars Online Delivery -



Presenter: Prof Dimitris Christopoulos

Language of Presentation: EnglishNo knowledge of Greek required.


The seminar will begin with a brief recount of the court proceedings and the legal disputes. An attempt will be made to provide a historical explanation of the phenomenon that is “Golden Dawn” and an appraisal of the judicial verdict.
Has Golden Dawn exited the political landscape? Can Golden Dawn reappear? What are the prospects of the Far Right in Greece under conditions where a health, economic and geopolitical crisis prevails? Can the system of government be safeguarded from it? Can Europe cope?

Currently a Professor at the Department of Political Science and History of Panteion University in Athens where he has been teaching since 2000. He is an Emeritus President of the International Federation for Human Rights ( FIDH ) and also chaired the board of the Hellenic League for Human Rights, the biggest and oldest Greek human rights association, ( for eight years (2003-2011).

He has taught as visiting professor and has provided lectures in different universities in Europe and the US. His academic publications and books reflect par excellence his interventions as a public intellectual in the field of human rights, migration, minorities and citizenship.
