Dr Emmanuelle Schon-Quinlivan is a lecturer in European politics in the Department of Government, UCC, since 2001. Born in France, she graduated in European law and political science from La Sorbonne (BL), Sciences Po Paris (MA) and Edinburgh University (LLM). She completed her PhD on the institutional impact of the 2000-2005 Kinnock administrative reforms under the supervision of Professor Brigid Laffan, University College Dublin.

She teaches comparative politics, European policy-making and institutional politics as well as French politics. Her research interests lie in the area of European institutional change. Emmanuelle has recently published Reforming the European Commission (Palgrave, 2011) as well as a chapter on the European Commission's role in European environmental policy in Environmental Policy in the European Union: contexts, actors and policy dynamics (Routledge, 2012). 

In 2014, Emmanuelle was awarded a Starting RPG by the Irish Research Council and led a research team investigating the rolethe European Commission as a European economic core executive. 

From 2017 to 2019, Emmanuelle will lead a Jean Monnet project which will develop a pupil-centred, bottom-up programme of discussion, discovery and fun on the European Union's values, symbols, purpose and ambitions at primary school level.
