Vincenzo De Meulenaere studied Early Modern History (2010) and International Politics (2012) at Ghent University. His master’s theses focussed on the diplomatic relations between England and the Habsburgs during the reign of Mary Tudor (1553-58) and the role of the Commonwealth of Nations in recent British foreign policy. After his studies he completed traineeships at the European Liberal Forum, the European Commission (DG HOME), the European Parliament (ALDE Group) and the Committee of the Regions.

Since the 1st of October 2020, Vincenzo is providing assistance to the 'Political History of Belgium' course.

In 2013 he published 'To bring good agreement and concord to Christendom': the Conference of Marck (1555) and English neutrality, 1553-1557', co-authored by prof.dr.
