Caroline de la Porte

After completing my PhD at the European University Institute in Florence, I worked at the University of Southern Denmark (2007-2013), and Roskilde University (2013-2015), before joining CBS in 2016. My research focuses on the interface between EU and national policy, institutions and politics, especially in EU macro-economic and fiscal policy, as well as social and labor market policy. Currently, I lead a WP on Fair Working conditions in the Horizon-funded project EU social citizenship project, and I am the principal investigator for CBS in the Nordforsk-financed research project “Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World” (ReNEW). I teach and supervise on a wide range of topics related to European Union politics, policy and law, including work-life balance policy and climate-mitigating policy, including in the field of energy policy. Methodologically, I specialize in small and medium-N qualitative analyses, with use of a variety of different data sources.
