Heather MacRae

Heather earned her PhD from Carleton University in 2005. While working on her dissertation, she taught comparative politics and international relations at both Carleton and University of VictoriaHeather MacRae. During the period from 2000-2007, Heather moved back and forth between Canada and her “second home” in Germany where she was doing research. Heather’s current research focuses on gender politics in the European Union. She has two main projects on the go: the first looks at the influence of multi-level governance on the activities of the German women’s movement and the redefinition of parental leave benefits. Her second area of interest examines the unintentional gender consequences of supposedly “gender neutral” EU policies. In 2014, Heather was awarded the Jean Monnet Chair by the European Commission.
