SEESOX Visiting Academics

SEESOX Visiting Academics

Marilena Koppa

Associate Prof., Panteion University of Athens



I arrived at SEESOX at St Antony’s College on the 1st of October 2018 as an academic visitor for two months. It has been a wonderful experience during which I have been able to deepen my knowledge, as I had the opportunity to conduct my research in an ideal environment as well as meet many interesting people. I had the opportunity to participate in a series of events and seminars, and exchange views with renown scholars on their specific area of interest. But I could not leave out the warm and friendly atmosphere of SEESOX that made my visit here special. From Professor Kalypso Nicolaidis, to the Director of SEESOX, Dr Anastasakis, to Julie Adams, heart and soul of SEESOX, and to all members of the SEESOX family, I would like to address a big thank you for making my stay here unforgettable. I really hope that I will have to opportunity to come back soon!

My experience as an Academic Visitor at St Antony’s College during the period September - October 2018 was outstanding. Affiliated to the “Political Economy of Financial Markets” (PEFM) Research Centre and closely linked to the European Studies Centre and SEESOX, I had the opportunity for the first time for a two-month stay in Oxford and were it not for my obligations at the Law School of the University of Athens, where I am tenured, I would have been able to make full use of the Academic Visitorship for the entire semester. I am currently finalising a comprehensive study entitled “European Banking Law within the System of European Financial Law” and the discussions held with colleagues specialising in this field, as well as the bibliographical sources found in the (literally) unique Oxford University libraries have  affected my work very positively. I would like to warmly thank Othon Anastassakis, Kalypso Nicolaides and Charles Enoch, who have supported my visitorship, as well as Julie Adams for all her assistance. I hope I will have the opportunity to return soon.
