I am a graduate student in Public Policy at Sciences Po Paris and the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin. Born in Romania, but living abroad. For the past four years I have been studying and closely following the socio-economic and political landscape of the European Union. Naturally, I am involved in and curious about its future. EUROPES is going to be a blog focused on the analysis of current affairs in the European Union from an interdisciplinary standpoint. The purpose is to provide a holistic view of European Affairs in terms of Politics and Policy, Political Economy, and Political Sociology at the European level, as well as the national one.
