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. Our show is hosted on Acast, but you can also listen to us here:

To put things mildly, things did not go as expected for both sides. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's visit to Greece was the first in 65 years after one of the founding fathers of the Turkish Republic, President Celal Bayar's trip in 1952. And now, as a consequence of this diplomatic flop, there might not be a similar visit for some time to come at least; if not for the next 65 years.
