Mette Kramer, Research Trainee

After graduating with a bachelor's in International Relations in 2021, I started the research master Cultural Leadership at the University of Groningen. With this master, I get the possibility to study the relationship between culture and international politics. At DutchCulture I work as a research trainee in the team of International Cultural Policy & Coordination, focusing on the translation of European values from international cultural policy to international cultural cooperation. It is inspiring to have the opportunity to work within this organisation that has so many relevant connections to the international cultural field.

Culture is interrelated with society, in the regard that mirrors, contrasts and reflects. It interests me to see how culture can develop dialogue and exchange, especially for fostering international political relations. In the challenges that Europe is facing, I think culture can partly be a solution by building connections. After living a year abroad in Berlin and Rome, I firmly believe in the value of the shared European (cultural) space.
