The discussion will be moderated by journalist Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou.

After the discussion, an Argentinean Tango Night will follow, complemented by live orchestra music, as part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center’s Social Ballroom series of events, offering a unique experience to everyone.
