Carine Germond is Associate Professor of European Studies at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Department of Historical Studies. She is programme Leader of the European Studies Programme (Bachelor and Master) and co-leads the European Studies Research Cluster. Before moving to Norway, she has worked at Maastricht University and Yale University. She has received distinguished fellowships from a variety of institutions across Europe, i.a. from the European Commission (IEF) and the EUI.
Her core research expertise is in comparative, transnational and international history of 20th century Europe and European integration after 1945. Her current research focuses on the role played by societal actors in debating, negotiating and making agricultural policy in or for Europe. She is currently working on a monograph that enquires into the role and influence of organized farm interests to explore and explain the striking lack of reform of the Common Agricultural Policy prior to 1992. In a new project, she examines the historical involvement of experts in international organizations (IOs) and their contribution to diffusing and transferring policy ideas within and across IOs in the 20th century.
She is also interested in the historically complex relationship between elites (e.g. experts) and trust and has published extensively on Franco-German relations in post-war Europe. She will contribute to the study on the history of the EPP group with a chapter on the contribution of the EPP Group to shaping the development of core internal EU policies. The chapter will cast fresh light on the evolving preferences, ambitions and positions of the EEP group, its shifting influence but also the internal, external or institutional constraints that affected its political action in key internal policy areas.
