Gabriel Elefteriu said:

It is very exciting to be joining one of London’s fastest rising next-generation think tanks. At the most precarious time for international security since the Second World War, the Council on Geostrategy has its focus on exactly the right strategic questions facing Britain, and offers a neutral alternative perspective to established thinking. I look forward to working with James, Viktorija and the rest of the excellent team here to take the organisation to new heights.
