Christos Mourdoukoutas is from Kalamata, a small town in South Greece. He graduated first in his BA program in International and European Studies at the University of Piraeus. During his studies, he was predominantly interested in the foreign policy followed by Great Powers and in international political economy. He co-authored the papers “News Portrayals of Cynicism: The State System in the News about WikiLeaks” and “Major Factors in the Greek Economy’s Competitiveness” given at conferences in Greece. He was also a member of the Turkish & Eurasian Studies Lab and became increasingly interested in researching relations between China and the Caucasus region states. His analysis “China- Caucasus Relations: Beijing’s Efforts to Penetrate into a Peripheral Subsystem” was published in the Laboratory’s Eurasian Studies Journal. Christos’ main area of interest is Chinese foreign policy. He is looking forward to expanding his knowledge on the political, military and economic means Beijing is willing to use to change the international status quo as a Great Power.
