Georges Prevelakis, Ambassador of Greece to the OECD

 

 

Ambassador George PREVELAKIS took up his duties as Permanent Representative of Greece to the OECD on 16 September 2013.

 

Mr. Prevelakis was born in Athens in 1949. He studied Architecture and Engineering in Athens and Urban and Regional Planning in France. After obtaining his PhD at the Sorbonne, he participated in a major Urban Planning reform in Greece. Since 1984, he has pursued an international academic career. Since the end of the Cold War, the focus of his teaching has shifted from Physical Planning to Geopolitics and International Relations.

 

Mr. Prevelakis has served as Professor and Research Professor in Greece (Polytechneion, Panteion University), in France (Sorbonne, Sciences Politiques of Paris and INALCO), in the United States (Johns Hopkins University, Boston University, Tufts University) and in the United Kingdom (London School of Economics). Between 2003 and 2005, he served as chairholder of the Constantine G. Karamanlis Chair in Hellenic and European Studies at The Fletcher School. He has been a University Professor at Pantheon-Sorbonne (Paris 1) since 2000, and has been active in the French and international media and think-tanks on questions related to Balkan security and lately to the Greek economic crisis.

 

Mr. Prevelakis' academic and policy interests focus on the interplay between Culture, Politics and Economics. As a Geographer, he envisages those questions through a variety of scales, territorial or reticular. The Greek Diaspora and the Greek merchant marine attract as much of his attention as the Greek State.

 

Mr. Prevelakis is co-director of the French academic journal Anatoli (CNRS Editions) and bi-weekly op-ed contributor to the Athens daily Estia. He has published many books and academic articles. The most known are: Les Balkans, Cultures et géopolitique (Nathan, Paris), Les réseaux des diasporas (Harmattan, Paris), Géopolitique de la Grèce (Complexe, Brussels).
