|Global governance, Competing multilateral strategies|
Balazs Ujvari is a Research Fellow jointly contributing to the Europe in the World programme at the Egmont – Royal Institute for International Relations and the European Policy Centre (EPC) since 2016. His area of research concentrates on global governance and the approaches of key international actors to multilateral issues. He pays particular attention to the European Union’s multilateral agenda and the ways it is being increasingly challenged by alternative multilateral strategies pursued individually or collectively by major emerging powers. His former contributions in this field include BRICS bloc(k) rising? (EU Institute for Security Studies, 2015) and L’Union européenne face aux BRICS dans la gouvernance mondiale : Une réponse efficace ? (College of Europe / United Nations University, 2014).
Mr Ujvari holds an MA in International Studies from Arhus University as well as an MA in EU International Relations and Diplomacy Studies from the College of Europe. Parallel to his studies, he had pursued traineeships at the United Nations University on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS), the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament as well as the Spokesperson’s Service of the European Commission. Before joining Egmont, Balazs had spent a year at the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) in Paris as a Junior Analyst.
