Bulgaria: Academic from the United States Suggests Tsipras and Zaev for Nobel for Peace

A prominent American academic argues that Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras deserves the Nobel Peace prize for his efforts to solve the “Macedonia” naming dispute.

Writing in the influential Foreign Policy journal, Edward P. Joseph says that Tsipras together with his partner in Macedonia, has created a model for solving identity clashes across the globe.

Joseph is adjunct professor and senior fellow at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.

He argues that the agreement to be signed on Sunday is a “stinging rebuke to Russia and to its populist cronies in Europe” and that it “injects a timely boost of confidence in the European Union and the entire Western project for the Balkans.”
