Ivo Dimitrov is currently completing a Masters in International Energy at SciencesPo Paris, combining the study of energy policy with his interest in Eurasian geopolitics. As part of his degree, he will spend a year in the foreign policy institute MGIMO in Moscow, exploring the intersection of energy, economics and security in the post-Soviet context. Previously, Ivo graduated summa cum laude from University College Utrecht, majoring in politics and economics. Outside of class, he headed his college’s newspaper, participated actively in various student governance organizations and set up a social entrepreneurship project with Enactus. Before heading for Paris, he also reported for the Dutch Financial Times from Taiwan and China, interned at the Clingendael Institute in the Hague, and worked with the International Center for Counter-Terrorism. The Humanity in Action Fellowship helped him gain an awareness of social justice in different contexts; lessons Ivo hopes to apply as he pursues his academic interests in Eastern Europe and Asia.
