Robert Madelin, who is with us at Fipra since last October, will continue as Visiting Fellow of Oxford University in the Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR). He will support both the Oxford Cyber Studies Programme and its work on trade in the current context of Brexit and US regime change. Robert had already been a Visiting Fellow since 2015.

The Oxford work plays to Robert’s established strengths. He was Senior Adviser for Innovation in the European Political Strategy Centre (EPSC), a body that reports to the President of the European Commission, and before that had been Director General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CONNECT); and for Health and Consumer Policy (DG SANCO). Prior to that he had been a trade negotiator for twenty years, both on behalf of the UK and for Europe.
