"Any way the wind blows" - Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody
Last Tuesday, the 1st of December, I started a new job. Working for the European External Action Service (EEAS), I am now a Policy Officer working on Africa. After three years in Niger I am very excited to now have this opportunity.
With regards to this blog, I have to reflect on what approach I will take and what is needed in terms of procedures. First of all, it goes without saying, that everything on this blog is strictly personal and in no way does it reflect the position of the EEAS or any other institution. Secondly, I will have to check if any particular permission is needed for this type of activity (and if so, get it). Finally, I might want to “angle” the perspectives taken in the blog – for example avoid topics that might be particularly controversial. (I have not yet made up my mind on the latter).
Nevertheless; food for thought. But a good “problem” to have!
