For more than seven years, Derk-Jan Eppink (NL) worked as a senior official behind the scenes in the European Commission. The Commission is not well-known to the general public, but makes decisions which affect the daily lives of almost half a billion Europeans. Now that he has left the Commission to take up a new job in New York, Eppink looks back on his time in Europe. In his workshop ‘Life of a European Mandarin’ (named as his book), he gives a rare glimpse of life in Europe’s corridor of power.
