Dominik Draxler (1992) obtained his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from the University of Vienna in 2015. His Thesis dealt with the question if Germany could be considered a potential hegemon in Europe in light of the Eurozone crisis and the resulting austerity measures essentially influenced by German foreign policy.
Currently, Dominik is enrolled in his final year at the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, pursuing a Master’s Degree in Advanced International Studies. His main academic interest lies, perhaps due to his own background and the experiences gained during his semester abroad in Washington D.C., in Transatlantic Relations. He himself would like to pursue an active career in this field after his studies, and contribute to strong Transatlantic ties on both sides of the Atlantic.
Within the framework of this workshop, Dominik acted as young ambassador to the Organization of World Heritage Cities, representing the city of Vienna.
