In Memoriam: Dr Alexandros Petersen

RUSI News, 22 Jan 2014

Dr Alexandros PetersenIt is with great sadness that RUSI notes the passing of Dr. Alexandros Petersen this past weekend in Kabul.

Alexandros was a brilliant young scholar of geopolitics and Eurasia and his loss is felt keenly across London's academic, policy and journalist community, including many colleagues at RUSI.  

In his all too short a life, Alexandros achieved great impact, publishing an acclaimed book The World Island, establishing branches of the Young Professionals in Foreign Policy (YPFP) network in London, Brussels and New York, and authoring numerous academic and journalistic articles on Eurasian geopolitics and energy. He also contributed to RUSI periodicals

His death in Kabul is a sad marker in an ongoing conflict and he will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.
