Erika Mann




I have a holistic approach to my work. My activities in international politics, trade and industry have been permeated by my commitments to social and humanitarian issues. Speaking German, English, Spanish and French has enabled me to gain intercultural competence. I support the Erika-Mann basic school in Berlin, as well as working with the Art of Living Foundation, where I deepened my experience in international crisis management. Before being a member of the European Parliament (1994-2009) I ran my own IT-consultancy (Philtech) and obtained a degree of educational science at the University of Hannover and a MA in philosophy and further education.
