Agora

In ancient Athens, the agora was where citizens gathered to hear news, discuss and, later, trade. The agora was the heart of the city’s political, cultural and spiritual life. It is this spirit we hope to channel in this section of the website. Here, the Agora is a public forum for discussing events unfolding in Greece and beyond.

In May 2020, we also launched a podcast called The Agora, delivering insight from our own experts and analysis from special guests.

If you enjoy intelligent, lively discussion and want the bigger picture, join us for a stroll through the Agora. You can listen to us on Acast, Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
