Field of expertise: International relations, gender equality, security and defence


Lucia Yar has been working on EU, international security and gender equality issues for almost 15 years as a political analyst, professionally following, researching and explaining issues to the public in the media, to politicians and experts in professional forums and to students in schools.

In 2022, she completed a doctorate at the Comenius University in Bratislava entitled "How Women Represent Women in the Regime that Stears Away from Democracy? Case Study of Turkey". She then became a lecturer at the same university in Media and International Relations.

She has extensive experience as a journalist, having worked for 7 years at the Slovenian part of the pan-European news website EURACTIV, covering roles such as Senior Editor and Editor-in-Chief. In 2024, she announced her candidacy for the European Parliament in the list of Progressive Slovakia, being elected as part of the party's six-strong delegation in Brussels.

In the European Parliament, she wants to be the voice of those who want to live in a safe, pro-European Slovakia, as a woman from the East.
