Lionel Barber, Shada Islam, and Constanze Stelzenmüller join EPC Strategic Council

Strategic Council / MESSAGE
European Policy Centre

Date: 08/07/2020
The European Policy Centre is delighted to announce that Lionel Barber, former Financial Times editor, Shada Islam, Managing Director at New Horizons Project Geopolitical, and Constanze Stelzenmüller, Senior Fellow on Foreign Policy at the Brookings’ Center on the United States and Europe, have joined the EPC Strategic Council. 

All three have built distinguished careers in their respective fields. Through their work as leading commentators, analysts and writers, they have shaped the debate about the European Union and its place in the world. Their experience will add fresh insights and forward-looking perspectives to the EPC’s efforts in making European integration work better.

Besides her new position in the Strategic Council, Shada Islam also becomes a Senior Adviser to the EPC’s Europe in the World programme.

The EPC Strategic Council, chaired by former European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, brings together thought leaders and experts from diverse backgrounds and nationalities. Once a year, they meet with EPC analysts to reflect on the strategic priorities of the Union and their implications for the work and strategic direction of the European Policy Centre.  

New members Lionel Barber, Shada Islam, and Constanze Stelzenmüller follow in the footsteps of other renowned and influential additions to the Strategic Council earlier this year, including former European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker, and former High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini. We very much look forward to collaborating with them and to their input on how to address the major challenges facing the European Union.
