Education[edit]

Manuel Muñiz began his studies at Runnymede College in Madrid.[1] He then completed a Juris Doctor and was accepted into the Madrid Bar.[citation needed]

Muñiz furthered his studies with a Master of Science in Financial Markets from the Instituto de Estudios Bursátiles (2009) in Madrid and a Master in Public Administration at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Governmennt (2011).[2] In addition, he joined the Centre d’études et de recherches internationales (CERI) of Sciences Po in Paris, France, as a research fellow[3] in 2012 before completing a DPhil (PhD) in International Relations at the University of Oxford,[4] with a particular focus on European security and defence (2016).[citation needed]

Career[edit]

Muñiz at a conference at the Rafael del Pino Foundation.

In 2014, Muñiz joined the Fundación Rafael del Pino in Madrid, Spain as Director of the Foundation’s Global Leadership Program with the goal of training Spanish leaders in the field of global affairs.[5] In 2015, he worked as a consultant for the UN Support Mission in Libya and provided advice on security matters.

From 2015 to 2017, Muñiz was the Director of the Program on Transatlantic Relations at Harvard University's Weatherhead Center for International Affairs[2] and, between 2016 and 2017, he was also a lecturer on the geopolitical consequences of the rise of populism at Tufts University. During this time, he was selected by Esglobal as one of the 25 intellectuals redefining Iberoamerican thought.

Muñiz was subsequently appointed a Senior Associate at Harvard University's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.,[6] where he was one of the promoters of the Project on Europe and the Transatlantic Relationship, aimed at strengthening the University’s capacities for teaching, research, and policy on the relationship between the United States and Europe.

In 2017, Dr. Muñiz became the Dean of the School of Global and Public Affairs[7] and founded the IE Centre for the Governance of Change[8] to examine the challenges exerted by accelerated societal and technological transformation on both the public and private sectors.

In January, 2020, the Council of Ministers of the Government of Spain approved Muñiz’s designation as Secretary of State for Global Spain, in replacement of Irene Lozano[9][10][4] in the position and the powers of the State Secretariat were extended to include economic diplomacy[11] with a marked emphasis on fighting the impact of COVID-19 on the Spanish economy.[12] He assumed office on 7 February.[13] Once in office, became part of the Committee of Experts advising the Spanish government on the COVID-19 pandemic.[14]

Muñiz has coordinated the crafting Spain’s Foreign Action Strategy 2021-2024,[15] and he has led the efforts for the composition of the first National Strategy on Technology and Global Order, a document which aims to launch Spain’s Technology Diplomacy. He has also led work at the OECD on the approval of a global mobility framework aimed at minimizing the economic impact of Covid 19, and was the coordinator of Spain’s OECD Ministerial Presidency during 2020. Muñiz was also a member of the Prime Minister’s Covid19 task force. As the Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson, he has held a weekly appointment with the media through briefings with the Spanish and international press and has led the Ministry's communication efforts, including those aimed at improving Spain's image abroad. In this role, he has developed actions and reputation campaigns such as the two editions of ‘Spain for Sure’, ‘ParamiEspañaEs’ or ‘Local Heroes, Global Spaniards’. Before completing her post, he had begun the creation of the first country reputation action plan, which is intended to create the consensus and the tools to boost Spain's image abroad.

On July 11 2021, he voluntarily resigned from the post of Secretary of State for Global Spain, following the announcement of the dismissal of the hitherto minister, Arancha González Laya. [16]


Research[edit]

Dr. Muñiz started his academic career working on European integration, with a particular focus on transatlantic relations, security and defence. He has also studied what he terms the “Anti-Elite Era”,[17] the rise of populism, and the implosion of the International Liberal Order.[18] As part of that process of changes in the International Order he has looked at the role of China, and the Technological Cold War emerging between China and the United States.[19]

Muñiz’s work has focused extensively on the impact of technology on the social contract and on the global order. His fundamental thesis is that rapid technological change has led to a fracturing of the social contract through the hollowing out of the Western middle class and, ultimately, the rise of populist politics.[20] He has openly called for the crafting of a new Social Contract for the Digital Era in which inequities are addressed and technological change is governed through foresight and the development of a science of anticipation.[21][22][23]
