Dalí ten Hove
Born in Amsterdam, raised in France, Dalí is Diaforlife’s youngest contributor. He completed the later part of his primary education at an international school, a period during which he developed a profoundly cosmopolitan outlook on human life, mixed with keen interests in socio-economic and environmental issues. He describes himself as ‘essentially nothing more than progressivist’, for which he deems the ingredients to be social-liberalism (or social democracy), cosmopolitanism and environmentalism. He is also a fervent Animal Rights supporter. Currently a student of International Politics & Economics at King’s College London, his primordial aim is to become a capable political thinker to help bridge the gap between the conservative forces of the developed world and the social needs of the developing – in a sustainable manner.
