Ariane Aumaitre

 I currently work as an Academic Assistant in the European Political and Governance Studies of the College of Europe. My main research focus is the intersection between European macroeconomic governance and national fiscal policies.

I graduated in Tourism Management in 2012. After that, I lived in Paris for three years, where I worked as an account manager in the tourism sector and deeply fell in love with the city.

Driven by my interest in politics, economics and international affairs, I left my job in 2015 and decided to go back to university: I then moved to Maastricht, where I studied a pre master degree in European Studies. After that year, I got a scholarship for the College of Europe in Bruges, where I obtained my MA in European Public Policy Analysis.

My main interests in the area of EU studies are European integration theories and the politics and policies of the Economic and Monetary Union. In the area of public policy, I’m interested in the intersection between female labor market participation, the sustainability of welfare states and equality of opportunities in post-industrial societies.

In my free time, I love travelling, taking pictures with my camera, attending cycling races, spending time with my family, boyfriend and cats, watching Grey’s Anatomy, listening to Taylor Swift and reading Ronald Dworkin, Susan Okin or Andrew Moravcsik.
