Advisor, International Governance and Public Policy Scholarships
Prime Minister's Office
Annamária Steiner-Isky is a graduate of Corvinus University Budapest and a former EU professional with mainly policy expertise. She worked as a policy advisor in the European Parliament (2009-2014) under the auspices of the European People’s Party. After legislative as well as political work with a focus on the European security policy perspectives, she decided to blend policy experience with academic research in the United Kingdom to find practical yet more comprehensive answers. Her main research interest was security policy cooperation as a possible renewed driver for a more efficient European integration amid the Brexit negotiations and the unprecedented challenge posed by mass migration.
During the Hungarian V4 presidency year (2017-18) she was tasked to design innovative policy initiatives for the State Secretary for European Affairs (V4 Prime Ministers’ Summit in Budapest, Future of Europe debate). Currently she is advising the Ministerial Commissioner within the PM Office on governance scholarships abroad. Owing to the political heritage of József Antall, she is honoured to contribute to the work of the Knowledge Centre.
She researches the EU concept of the Founding Fathers with a special touch on sustaining the Judeo-Christian cultural roots and values and as such has a vested interest in writing about a strong Europe of strong nations, reconciliation of European histories, national sovereignty and a more citizen-friendly Europe. She has been a guest speaker in the Robert Schuman Institute since 2014.
