AUC TO HOST WORKSHOP ON THE EMERGING STRATEGIC CO-OPERATION BETWEEN EGYPT, CYPRUS AND GREECE


WHAT
“The Emerging Strategic Co-operation between Egypt, Cyprus and Greece: Energy and Security” is a workshop that brings together academics from the three Eastern Mediterranean countries. The workshop is jointly organized by the Center for American Studies and Research (CASAR) and the School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at The American University in Cairo (AUC) in cooperation with the Institute for International Relations, Panteion University, and the Center for Energy Policy at the University of Nicosia (UNIC).
The workshop aims at exploring, through innovative ideas and joint research, means to translate such partnership into synergies and common projects, particularly in the areas of hydrocarbon monetization, electricity (due to Euro-Africa and an electricity project connecting Egypt with Crete promoted by Egyptian companies) and renewable energy. The workshop will also address the strategic importance of this tripartite partnership from the security perspective, recognizing Egypt, Greece and Cyprus as pillars of stability in the region.
