Ariane Takyi (UK / DE) was peer elected to conduct political research on young people in England to represent findings in regular meetings with the UK Government’s Cabinet Office, EU decision-makers at the European Commission, and at EU Youth Conferences.
From there on, she has been active in the political sphere through a multitude of campaigns and organisations – spanning from assisting a Liberal Democrats candidate during the UK general elections, to working on EU transport policy in relation to Dieselgate. Her enthusiasm for all things politics and youth, led her to play a strong part within the ACP YPN: African Caribbean Pacific Young Professionals Network, where she ensures young people are part of policy-making within institutions at the ACP and EU levels, and has engaged in several key dialogues.
She is a BA (Hons) International Development graduate and holds a joint Master’s from Germany and Spain in European Politics – focusing on EU-ACP economic and trade relations.
Ariane will be joining LYMEC to help forward policy developments and is passionate to help young liberals lead a meaningful and central role in impacting the present and future.
