As a Dahrendorf Postdoctoral Fellow Julie Braun is responsible for developping a so-called European Institutions Monitor (EIM). The EIM will map and assess the performance of core institutions and agencies in charge of implementing policies across the EU. It will start by assessing how national institutions work, what their performance capacity is, and how they might be improved through best practice expertise. The EIM will then be expanded to include the assesment of implementation of EU policies.
Julie Braun is Dahrendorf Postdoctoral Fellow at the Hertie School of Governance, where she is responsible for developing the European Institutions Monitor. After completing her PhD within the LSE’s Government Department on comparative EU regions’ European policies and identity-building, Julie was an LSE Fellow and has taught at the LSE for five years. Prior to this, Julie worked as European Policy Stagiaire at the UK’s West Midlands office in Brussels and completed a political journalism traineeship at Inter Press Service.
