The 5th Greek-Turkish Young Leaders Symposium (GTYLS) on Security will be be held in Kavala, Greece on 4-7 December 2019. The event is organized by the Center for International and European Studies (CIES) in partnership with the Thessaloniki-based Navarino Network, and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom. The Greek-Turkish Young Leaders Symposium (GTYLS) on Security will include the participation of 15 Greek and 15 Turkish International Relations and related specialists (MA students, PhD candidates, young PhD scholars, and professionals), aged between 22 and around 35 years old, and Greek and Turkish experts that will act as speakers and trainers.
The GTYLS includes sessions on The State of the World, Understanding Turkish and Greek Foreign Policies, Assessing the State of Greek-Turkish Relations, Communicating Greek-Turkish Relations, NATO’s Role, and Young Leaders and Engagement. All debates and discussions will be channeled into the “Peer to Peer Workshop” facilitated by an expert trainer where participants will work together to develop collaborative project proposals.
