The European Commission

Dan Valeriu DIONISIE is a graduate of the first generation of students of the Faculty of Political Science at the University of Bucharest (class of 1995). Since October 2016, he leads the Economic analysis and evaluation unit at DG Justice and Consumers, which develops the economic evidence that underpins justice, consumer, equality and fundamental rights policies of the European Commission. He joined the Commission in 2012 as Head of Unit for Consumer markets at DG Health and Consumers, in charge with monitoring consumer conditions in the EU's Internal Market and researching consumer behaviour with a view to inform European policies. Among others, his Unit elaborates the EU Consumer Scoreboards, which assess the performance of over 50 consumer markets and benchmark the consumer environment in different countries, and pioneered behavioural research to inform EU policies. The evidence produced by his Unit has informed key policies of the Commission, in particular linked to the Digital Single Market and the New Deal for Consumers. Before joining the Commission, he had a career with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) at national and international level, during which he dealt among others with inter-agency coordination, policy development, institutional reform, democratic governance, public administration, anti-corruption. Before the UNDP, Dan worked as a foreign affairs expert at the Presidency of Romania and as teaching assistant in political science at the University of Bucharest. He has a dual academic background, in political science and in computer engineering.

The event is organized with the support of support of the European Commission’s Back to University initiative and the Centre for International Cooperation and Development Studies (IDC) of the Faculty of Political Science at the University of Bucharest (FSPUB) as part of the professional seminars within the faculty’s MA program in International Public Affairs (MIPA), as well as with the support of the Alumni of the University of Bucharest Association as part of the Alumni Career Talks series.
