Martin Harris is ambassador at the British Embassy in Bucharest, with a deep understanding of European diplomacy and present political contexts. His Excellency will take the TEDxBucharest stage to ignite an exciting conversation about international power structures and the role that countries such as Romania might play.
He came to Bucharest after doing a course in Romanian language in Iasi, which was also an opportunity to learn about Romania’s history and its culture. From the first moment, he declared himself amazed by the huge changes in Romania in the last 20 years and by the large number of links that have developed between Romania and the UK.
Previously, he has served at the British Embassies in Kiev and Moscow, as well as at the UK Delegation to the OSCE in Vienna. His last job was in the Cabinet Office in London, advising the government on Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as Russia and the countries of the former Soviet Union
