Dr Christine Reh, Director of UCL’s Master in European Public Policy, talks to Björn Kjellström, Head of UK Office, European Parliament.

Björn joined the European Parliament Office in the UK after having spent six years as Head of the EP Office in Sweden. "Being here might be the most challenging, and most fun, job I can think of." says Björn.

His previous posts include two years at the Swedish Foreign Office and a few spells working for the European Commission. But it all started with being a trainee in Brussels in 1992, three years before Sweden became a member.

Educated in the USA and at the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Bologna, Björn has a deeply rooted interest in people, society and European Affairs.
