About Rémy

Rémy Bonny is a political scientist and LGBTQI activist from Belgium. He is a specialist in the way the LGBTI-movement’s demands construct international relations – specifically in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

In recent years, Rémy has been conducting research to the interactions between illiberal states like Vladimir Putin’s Russian Federation and the European Union and former Soviet Republics. Therefore, he has been living in Budapest, Brussels, Warsaw and Venice.

He graduated in 2018 as a Master of Science in Political Science at the Free University of Brussels(VUB) – where his dissertation was supervised by the well-known professor in international relations Dr. Jonathan Holslag. After his Master, Rémy graduated from the postgraduate programme of the Global Campus of Human Rights.

As an advocate and researcher in LGBTQI-Politics, Rémy travels around the world to talk to LGBTI-organisations, high-level policy makers and academics about his research and the situation in their countries and in the EU.

To see such a young person fighting so hard for equality reassures me that our future is in safe hands. Rémy’s work is impactful and incredibly important.

Rémy is one of the best advocates in the world to raise LGBT-issues. We felt his kind, sensitive, professional and supportive approach towards the LGBT-community representatives in Armenia many times.
