Ronny Patz is a post-doctoral research fellow at the Chair in Political Systems and European Integration at the Department of Political Science (Geschwister-Scholl-Institute) at the University of Munich. His current research focuses on budgeting in international organisations, in particular in the European Union and the United Nations system.
Before joining LMU in June 2014, he has been working at the EU Office of Transparency International in Brussels on the transparency, integrity and accountability of EU institutions closely following the 2014 EU elections.
Ronny has studied political science at Freie Universität Berlin as well as Central and Eastern European transitions at Tartu Ülikool (Estonia). During and after his studies, he has worked for the Estonian Ministry of Education, for the German EU Council Presidency (at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg) and in pre-electoral assistance at the Council of Europe Field Office in Moldova. In 2009, he joined Potsdam University (Germany) as an academic assistant, doctoral research and lecturer, teaching courses on political science methods and on the German political system in the European context. He received his PhD from Potsdam University in 2014.
