Tim Rivera is currently Programs Officer at the Delegation of the European Union to the United States. He is responsible for the management, development, and implementation of a multimillion-euro portfolio of grants and contracts to support the EU’s policy, outreach, and public diplomacy objectives in the United States. He also leads on the EU-US education relationship and manages the Delegation’s relations with American universities, think tanks, and civil society.
He joined the European Union after four years with the British Council, most recently as the Project Manager for Bridging Voices, a grants program supporting transatlantic academic and policy dialogues on a broad range of issues at the intersection of religion and international affairs. Bridging Voices was funded by a $450,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. He also worked extensively on the British Council’s Our Shared Future project, supported by a $500,000 grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, to improve transatlantic discourse on relations between Muslims and non-Muslims through the development and mobilization of a network of academics, experts, and journalists on both sides of the Atlantic.
In 2014, Tim completed a Master of Arts in International Relations with distinction from the War Studies Department at King’s College London where his research focused on cultural relations and cultural diplomacy. In January 2015, the University of Southern California’s Center on Public Diplomacy published his MA dissertation, Distinguishing Cultural Relations from Cultural Diplomacy: The British Council’s Relationship with Her Majesty’s Government.
He graduated cum laude from Yale University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science focusing on international relations.
