Biography of Alina Böling

Questions regarding the society have interested me for as long as I can recall. For me, politics is all about creating fair and equal possibilities for all people to affect their own lives and living conditions. International and global issues have always been close to my heart and I have had the privilege to work with these kinds of issues in different missions and assignments. Of all my experience, meeting and discussing with different kind of people is however what have taught me the most. Meeting students in Pietarsaari, third generation refugees in Lebanon, diplomats in New York and activists in North Africa has given me insights and inspiration to continue working with societal issues. I stand for the European Parliament Elections because I wish to create a more socially sustainable world, push for a strong European cooperation and work for freedom, equality and for Europe. I consider the European Union to be something more than just a single market. For me, the EU is a vital environment in which I can travel, study, work and live. Europe has  for a long time for me been a place for collaboration, establishing contacts and creating change. Curriculum Vitae
