Curriculum vitae

Viviane Reding is a key figure in Europe, completing 3 terms as a European Commissioner.

In 1999, having served 10 years in the Luxembourg Parliament and 10 years in the European Parliament, she became the European Commissioner for Education and Culture and pushed through the Erasmus World Programme.

In 2004, she became the Commissioner for Information Society and Media, winning a major battle against telecom companies by capping mobile roaming charges by 70%.

In 2010, she became first Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship. She put in place a truly EU justice policy, launching a series of ground-breaking proposals in the field of civil, commercial, consumer and criminal law, thus creating the basis for a European area of justice, including major proposals in the field of consumer rights, women on boards, a common European sales law and the reform of the EU data protection rules.
