Biography[edit]

Born in 1961, Tenzer is a graduate of the École normale supérieure (1980-1982), Sciences Po (1980-1982) and the École nationale d'administration (1984-1986). He also holds a degree in history from the University of Nanterre.[3]

He has taught political philosophy at Sciences Po (1986-2004) and since 2014 he is teaching there Science of Government (Master of International Public Affairs). As a civil servant, Tenzer is the former head of the Commissariat général du Plan (1994-2002), a former member of the staff of France's minister of Economy and Finance (1987-1988), and a former rapporteur at the Cour des comptes (1991-1993).[2]

Nicolas Tenzer is a member of the Ordre national de la Légion d'honneur and the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.[2]

Views[edit]

Tenzer has stated seeks a middle path between two opposing viewpoints on French power: that France's status as a power and its role in world affairs are declining, and that France's role in world affairs is increasing.[4] In a 2016 article for online policy platform Euractiv, Tenzer stated that the EU should focus on Romania, who he claimed was the last country in Eastern Europe with a pro-European leader.[5]
