Expert on Europe

Anneleen grew up in Ghent, Belgium. After finishing secondary school, she studied law at the University of Ghent (2003) and next European law at the University of Rennes in France (2004). Following her studies in France, she began work as an assistant at the European Institute of the Faculty of Law at Ghent University. In 2010, she moved to the N-VA’s research department, where she was responsible for the domain of Europe. In this role Anneleen was also very closely involved in the party conference on confederalism and in the federal government negotiations in 2014.

In January 2015 Anneleen joined the European Parliament where she is a member of the committee for Internal Market and Consumer Protection and of the committee for Industry, Research and Energy. She is also member of the delegation for relations with the United States and of the delegation to the EU-Russia Parliamentary Cooperation Committee.

Anneleen is co-author of the books This is how Europe works after the Lisbon-treaty (Zo werkt Europa na Lissabon, Kortrijk, UGA/Die Keure, 2010) and This is how Europese works (Zo werkt Europa, Kortrijk, UGA/Die Keure, 2007).

Fewer but more effective

Anneleen Van Bossuyt aims, with a critically constructive attitude, to jointly build a European Union that strives in every respect for fewer and more effective regulations and which focuses on growth, jobs and competitiveness. She considers it her personal goal to help bridge the gap between citizens and Europe. She also advocates for a Europe that focuses on core tasks, which offer genuine added value. Other tasks are best tackled closer to citizens: at the local, regional or national level.
