Belgian Public Affairs Maze

Belgian politics is a handful. The Kingdom has six governments and six parliaments (without even mentioning the European Parliament), meaning that competences are also spread over different levels.

It is essential to comprehend the state of play of every level of government as well as the sometimes intricate relations between those levels in order to identify where to efficiently engage. Dr2 Consultants closely monitors Belgian political developments and analyses the impact of specific policy areas that affect your business.

Together with you, we develop a political narrative based on your strategic objectives and we empower your organization to ensure your voice is heard by the relevant policymakers. Dr2 Consultants gladly guides your organization through the world of Belgian Public Affairs.

Belgian Young Professional (BYP) Network 

Brussels is the second most cosmopolitan city in the world, with 62% of its inhabitants born in another country or with a migration background. You would almost forget that Brussels is not only a metropolis and the capital of the European Union, but also the capital of Belgium. A bustling city where Flemish, Walloon and Brussels residents live and work.

Almost 10% of the Belgian working population is active in Brussels. Among them also a lot of young ambitious people who are working on their career in Public Affairs.

That is why the Belgian Young Professional (BYP) Network aims to gather young professionals active in Belgian Public Affairs at all levels (from regional to federal to European levels), whether you are working as political staffer, lawyer, civil servant, in the press or as a service provider.
