WASHINGTON, DC – The American Hellenic Institute (AHI) is pleased to announce the hire of Constantine Politis as the Institute’s Legislative Assistant and Special Projects Coordinator.

“We are excited and fortunate to have Constantine join our staff,” AHI President Nick Larigakis said. “The legislative experience he gained through his internships on Capitol Hill will be a tremendous asset to our mission.”

Constantine holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Denison University in Granville, Ohio. He also obtained a minor in History and a concentration in Public Policy.

“I am excited to work for AHI,” Politis said. “The Institute has played a pivotal role in strengthening the bonds between the United States and Greece and Cyprus. I look forward to contributing to AHI’s mission and grow its influential network.”

Politis previously served as a policy intern for Congressional Hellenic Caucus Co-Chairman, U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), where he gained valuable legislative experience. He worked closely with Congressman Bilirakis’ staff on a number of issues of importance for the Greek and Cypriot American community.

In addition, Politis was involved with policy throughout his tenure at Denison. Most notably, the Denison student government body appointed him to serve on the Campus Affairs Council where Politis worked directly with the university’s vice president to find innovative ways to improve campus life.  He helped to bring both the Denison College Republicans and Denison Orthodox Christian Fellowship to campus, where he served as co-president and vice-president, respectively. He also served as a Political Science Department fellow and writing tutor, and he was a member of the Moot Court team.

Politis received his introduction to European politics through a semester-long program centered in Copenhagen, Denmark. The program included field studies to the European Union and NATO headquarters in Brussels as well as to the International Court of Justice at The Hague.

Politis is a native of Pittsburgh, Pa., where he attended Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church.

The American Hellenic Institute is a non-profit Greek American think-tank and public policy center that works to strengthen relations between the United States and Greece and Cyprus, and within the Greek American community.
