Junior Fellow & Communications
is currently a Junior Fellow at the European Democracy Lab. Student of International Relations at the University of Groningen, Bastian has developed a strong passion for European integration ever since participating in and organizing different school exchange programs within and outside Europe. Having previously gained experience in the development cooperation sector with United Nations Volunteers (UNV) and the African Movement for Rural Development (ARUDMO), he has hence broadened his keen interest in European public policy beyond the development agenda. In the future Bastian dreams of living in a European Republic that has overcome the nation-state, a concept with which he and many of his peers no longer identify.
