Niklas Franke

Editor-in-chief of Eyes on Europe, Niklas is in his second year of a Master’s in European Studies at the IEE /ULB in Brussels. Grown up in Germany, he has also lived three years in Spain, particularly in Madrid, where he completed parts of his bachelor’s program. Although aware of the different cultural facets of Europe, Niklas argues for the European citizenship. For him, the debates and a critical examination of the institutions and the member states are fundamental for the creation of a European identity.
