Greece needs to evaluate its potential
Ioanna Tourkochoriti chose to study Law because of her interest in the structure of the modern state. During her studies, she discovered that, although the focus on social institutions did satisfy her curiosity, she was more interested in uncovering the reasons these institutions exist. Upon completing her studies, she moved to France where she received two master degrees, in Philosophy of Justice and Political Philosophy at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales-Paris and in Public Law at the Panthéon Assas Paris II University. Her phd thesis, which revolved around the different ways of safeguarding freedom of expression in Europe and the US, was awarded the top academic distinction by the E.H.E.S.S.-Paris. She has served as a member of Scientific Staff at the Citizen’s Advocate, while as a lawyer she has co-handled cases examined by the European Human Rights Court.
