Rémi Bader


Rémi Bader was born in Paris in 1971. His career has been characterized by his desire to explore new horizons, his willingness to be involved, and his passion for education and training.

Exploring new horizons

Exploring new horizons

First and foremost this means a passion for travel. At the age of seventeen, Rémi Bader travelled to the Sahara, where he acted as a companion to a guide in his mission to explore the Western Sand Sea. At eighteen, he attempted to cross the Central High Atlas (Morocco) alone. Both of these experiences had a profound effect on him. They enabled him to see a journey as one of the most intense and enriching ways of learning about the world, especially in terms of diversity.

This passion goes hand in hand with his great interest in learning languages. In addition to French, which is his mother tongue, Rémi Bader speaks fluent English, Spanish, and Catalan. He has also studied German for ten years and has begun his studies in Arab, Italian and Chinese.

Willingness to be involved

Willingness to be involved

His willingness to be involved has developed mostly in the realm of politics. He was a parliamentary assistant to Segolène Royal (one of the leading figures of the French Socialist Party). He was also a member of Témoin, a group of thinkers associated with Jacques Delors, former president of the European Commission. Furthermore, he contributed as a speechwriter and worked on developing thematic dossiers during the French presidential campaign of 1991-1992.

These experiences allowed him to see both the importance and the limits of political action. What is more, they allowed him to value the role of an individual’s education in his ability and readiness to get involved and transform the world.

Passion for education and training

Rémi Bader has a literary background (DEA in Comparative Literature from La Sorbonne) and studied geopolitics (IFRI French Institute for International Relations). He completed his university education with specialized courses, such as, Geopolitical Questions in the Arab World, at the Institut des Langues et des Civilisations Orientales and Political Philosophy, at Harvard University’s summer program.

He has always sought a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach in his classes, raising concerns, creating debates, and analyzing issues across different disciplines. He began working as a teacher in the French Institute in Amsterdam where he taught French language and culture for two years. He also taught various seminars on the European construction.

He fully developed his passion for education at Aula Escuela Europea (Barcelona, Spain), a prestigious school renowned for its academic excellence and for its unique educational project. Aula Escuela Europea combines demanding academics and a strong emphasis on personal development. Rémi Bader worked at this school for over ten years teaching French Literature and Geopolitics in addition to being in charge of several projects, especially in the international field.
