I have a background in international relations and European studies. I am based in Belgium but have lived/studied/worked in Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia and Greece. My main interests are EU affairs, international politics and the Western Balkan area.
Why I joined FutureLab Europe? Thanks to FutureLab Europe I got to know the Eurobubble much better!
Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? I believe Europe needs active citizens because they are the ones building the Union.
