Caroline de la Porte

I am Professor MSO at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business, Copenhagen Business School. I have previously worked at Roskilde University (2013-2015) and at the University of Southern Denmark (2007-2013). My research on European social policy covers regulatory initiatives in the realm of family policy and flexible work as well as soft law initiatives in social investment. I have also studied the fiscal dimension of EU policy, including the EU’s Next Generation EU fund. In recent years, my work has also focused on the Nordic welfare model, especially in the field of family policy. Currently, I lead a WP on Fair Working conditions in the Horizon-funded project EU social citizehship 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, as well as comparative public policy, but also other issues, such as education policy and climate change. Methodologically, I specialize in in-depth qualitative analyses.
