The EST’s Inter­na­tional Office com­prises EST’s Ambas­sad­ors all over Europe. The EST Ambas­sad­ors are the link between the EST and the EU’s mem­ber states and offi­cial can­did­ate mem­ber states. They rep­res­ent the EST, pro­mote and organ­ize events loc­ally, write blogs about their country (which you can read here) and make sure our net­work is as big as pos­sible. They are, in short, essen­tial to our func­tion­ing.

Johannes Tropper, Inter­na­tional Officer

Johannes holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science, writing his thesis on the role of the European Court of Justice as an engine of integration.

Currently Johannes is pursuing a Law Degree at the University of Vienna, specializing in International Law and EU law.

In 2014 he organized the Vienna International Model United Nations (VIMUN) simulation conference at the UN headquarters in Vienna.

Johannes became involved with the EST due to his interest for EU politics and his passion for European integration. As International Officer, Johannes plans to expand the network of Ambassadors of the EST all across Europe in order to share the divergent views on EU integration and have more students engage in the debate about the future of the European Union.
