About me

Agis received his PhD in History and International Relations at UCL’s Institute of the Americas. In particular, Agis’ thesis explored the ideological dynamics of Great Power competition and uses the case of Cold War American interventionism in Greece - and beyond - to assess the ethical value systems that great powers operate with. Agis has previously taught courses on global politics, Asian geopolitics, and political philosophy at UCL, while at LSE, he has taught American Foreign Policy and Crisis Management in War and Peace. A graduate of Harvard University and the University of Melbourne, along with his teaching responsibilities, Agis works as an analyst of foreign affairs at the Office of the Prime Minister (Greece).
