Who is she ?    FR version

Corinne Nativel is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Paris-East Créteil (UPEC). She was trained as a linguist and social scientist and holds a Master’s degree in Modern Languages and European Studies from the University of Paris IV-Sorbonne (1993) and a PhD in political sociology and political economy from the Institute for German Studies at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom (2000). 

Her research is broadly located in the field of policy analysis with a focus on social justice and place/space restructuring. She tries to understand and explain the impact of economic and welfare restructuring on the production and reproduction of social inequalities in given places, paying particular attention to the influence of individual and collective strategies, policy networks and governance mechanisms. The great majority of her research is concerned with the ways in which the neoliberal ideology impacts upon the restructuring of public policy in various fields (employment, family, housing, youth) and at various scales (local, national, European and global).

Corinne is a member of the IMAGER Research Centre (CIMMA team) at the University Paris East-Créteil and an associate of the Centre for Research on the English-Speaking World (CREW) at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University. She previously held posts as a contract researcher and visiting lecturer with several other British and French universities (Wolverhampton, Edinburgh, Kingston, Sciences Po Bordeaux, Paris III-Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris X-Nanterre, Paris I-Panthéon Sorbonne, Glasgow, Lancaster, Loughborough, Aberdeen). She has conducted work for the OECD, the European Commission, the French Youth Ministry, the French Family Allowance Fund, the Giulio Pastore Foundation (Italy) and the Sloan Foundation (New York).
