Dr. Daniela Schwarzer is a leading political analyst, lecturer and advisor on EU affairs. She is the Senior Research Director and member of the Executive Team of the German Marshall Fund of the United States and directs GMF’s Europe Program. She is based in GMF’s Berlin office. She remains a Senior Non-Resident Fellow with the Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) in Berlin where she previously served as head of the division on European Integration.
Most of Schwarzer’s work concentrates on the crises in the euro area and their consequences. Other fields of expertise are economic governance, questions of democratic legitimacy, Franco-German relations and institutional developments in the EU.
In her work, Schwarzer is driven by the idea that even today, Europe’s political and social stability and economic prosperity cannot be taken for granted. As a board member of Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, the think tank that the former president of the European Commission Jacques Delors set up, she is strongly committed to European integration.
In April 2014, Schwarzer joined the Board of BNP Paribas as a Non-Executive Director. But her links to France had been close before that: in 2007/2008, the French Foreign Ministry appointed her a member of the working group “Europe” of the White Book Commission on Foreign and European Policy and she served as an advisor to the Ministry’s strategic planning unit ahead of the French EU Presidency. In 2011/2012, she was a scientific advisor for the French Prime Minister’s Center for Strategic Analysis. She has also been active in Warsaw: in 2010/2011 she was a member of the team of academic advisors to Poland’s EU Presidency.
In February 2014, Daniela Schwarzer was appointed a Senior Research Professor at the School of Advanced and International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University in Washington DC and Bologna, Italy, after having spent the academic year 2012/13 at Harvard University’s Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. Having a strong liking for teaching, she has been an adjunct lecturer at the Hertie School of Governance since 2010. Schwarzer has held guest lecturer positions at various international universities, the most distant being the European Institute in Macau, China.
Schwarzerin Hamburg in 1973, studied political science and linguistics in Tübingen, Reading in England and at Sciences Po in Paris. She received her doctorate in political economy in 2005 from the Free University in Berlin. Her thesis “Fiscal Policy Coordination in the Euro Area” remains highly relevant.
Between 1996 and 1999, Schwarzer was desk officer and later Head of the Information Department at the Association for the Monetary Union of Europe in Paris, a private sector organization. From 1999 to 2004, she worked with the newly-founded Financial Times Deutschland, first as a member of the development team working in Hamburg and London, later as editorial writer and France correspondent. In 2005, she joined the SWP in Berlin. Schwarzer is a member of the Tönissteiner Kreis, an association of internationally-experienced German leaders in science, business and politics.
