Biography

Victor Broers (LLM) is a public thinker and writer. After finishing grammar school, he studied European law, civil law and law philosophy at the University of Amsterdam and he furthered his knowledge on economic theory at the London School of Economics.

During the period following the Lehman Brothers’ collapse he worked as an advisor for the Dutch Minister of Finance on the reform of the European financial infrastructure. Broers was also closely involved in policy matters related to the European Debt crisis. Based on this experience and on many interviews with high-level insiders across Europe Broers wrote Europa in het Rood (Europe in the Red). According to several Dutch and Belgium media this book forms “a surprisingly clear account of how these crises overcame Europe and how it affects our society”. With his books and other publications Broers aims to provide readers with new, alternative visions on our society and the way it could governed. So he did in his Dutch bestseller, Thomas Piketty’s Kapitaalin which he analyses Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century and discusses the question of economic inequality in a broader perspective.

Over the years, Broers has built an extensive network of public and private leaders, thinkers and other influencers across Europe. In 2015 he founded the Rose Society, a network of visionary thinkers who work on some of the most pressing social questions of today’s Europe. Broers is dedicated to the preservation and development of Europe’s cultural, spiritual and physical heritage for future generations.
