"Complex and complicated systems need straight forward and comprehensible explanations. Elucidating the Belgian and EU political systems is my everyday goal."
Both Belgian as well as EU Public Affairs are the main drivers in the daily work of Tristan. Understanding the complexity of these systems and translating this into clear cut and usable advice to clients is what passionates him the most. At Dr2 Consultants, Tristan supports the team on various matters, from the transport sector to circular economy topics.
Tristan obtained his bachelor's degree in Political Science at Leiden University, after which he completed a master’s degree in Comparative Politics at the KU Leuven. He specialised in European Affairs through the post-graduate master’s programme at the College of Europe in Bruges. During his studies, Tristan has worked for the bilateral Embassy of the Netherlands in Belgium for 6 months as a stagiaire, where he took part in the Politics, Press and Culture department.
Tristan is fluent in Dutch, English and French.
