Author of the Blog: Rubén Ruiz Calleja
Policy research and analysis in European affairs and Spanish foreign policy. The European integration process and the European and international dimension of Spain are among my working areas.
After completing studies in translation and interpreting, I continued my studies at the Diplomatic School of Spain with an MA in Diplomacy and International Relations. I carried out after that a year-long work experience in the Policy Planning Unit of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Spain. I then obtained an MA in European Interdisciplinary Studies at the College of Europe (Natolin) and, next, I have been working in a research institute for European affairs, as well as at the European Commission.
My areas of specialization and interest are the Spanish foreign policy, the European Union and its external relations, EU security and defence policy, EU enlargement and neighbourhood policy, digital agenda for Europe, geostrategy and international relations, and international security.
