Stavros Kalenteridis

International relations expert – Communication specialist

Stavros is by nature an Aristotelian “political animal”. He began his studies in political science in Plato’s hometown – Athens.

After 4 years of active participation in various youth and student groups he traveled to the U.S. to satisfy his ever-increasing academic needs.

Living in the States, he earned two Masters’ degrees, one in international relations and the other in political communication. At the same time, he worked as an employee at the Greek Consulate in Boston, a research assistant in his school, and a member in two major political campaigns – one for a Democrat, and one for a Republican candidate.

After 3 years he finally heard the call of his country, and returned to Greece with a  strong feeling to give back to his community. He became the founding member of two civil society organizations: a political NGO, and a foundation that promotes history, culture and Democracy.

Currently, he is involved in various public diplomacy projects, writes political articles, gives lectures on political communication and continues his personal study of history and political philosophy.
