Passionate about politics. I am particularly interested in national and cultural identities and how they can influence international relationships between countries and blocs of countries. As an expatriate I can appreciate how cultural differences, however real are often over-simplified in stereotypes and how they can shape a country's foreign policies. I believe that all countries and cultures are of same value, that we can all learn from each others. Therefore I am also a strong believer in international cooperation, win-win solutions.
