Ophélie Omnes

Visiting Fellow

Ophélie Omnes is President of the French chapter of the European Federalists. She is also a French qualified lawyer with experience gained in Paris, Brussels and Luxembourg. As a Visiting Fellow at Das Progressive Zentrum, she works in the International Dialogue programme, on the topics of the institutional architecture of the European Union, the role of Franco-German friendship and the creation of a European public space. Ophélie Omnes has been an activist in the federalist movements since 2010, being active on both national and European levels, focusing, among other things, on the institutional reforms needed at EU level and transnational cooperation. She has been leading several diversity-focused projects in politics and business, including the JEF task force on "Empowerment & Diversity" (since 2017) and the "Diversity and Inclusion" Luxembourg group of a global law firm in 2018 and 2019. She is always happy to take part in a panel - or moderate it - and to coordinate projects.
