Gabriel Glöckler studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University (St. Edmund Hall) and holds a Master’s degree from the College of Europe (Promotion Alexis de Tocqueville 1996/97). After having worked as a Teaching Assistant at the College’s Department for Political and Administrative Studies, he started his career at the European Central Bank in 1999, initially as Economist. He served five years as Counsellor to the ECB’s Vice-President Lucas Papademos before becoming Deputy Head of the EU Institutions Division within the Bank’s Directorate General International and European Relations where he was in charge of the ECB’s interaction with ‘Brussels’, and in that capacity also a member of the EU’s Economic Policy Committee. Thereafter he was Head of the ECB Secretariat and Assistant Secretary to the ECB’s Executive Board and Governing Council. Since 2016, he joined the senior management of the ECB’s Directorate General Communication as Principal Adviser, where he focuses on the Bank’s outreach towards the general public, politics, and academia and the strategic direction of its communications.

Gabriel joined the Department for Political and Administrative Studies as a Visiting Professor in 2013, after having been a regular guest speaker at conferences and academic courses at the College for a number of years. He has published in a variety of academic journals and regularly delivers guest lectures in different academic and public settings across Europe. His latest work focuses on the creation of banking union and the interaction between politics and financial markets.
