Her research focus is on the European Union (EU) as an international actor, international relations, and security issues.
“Prof. Anderson brings more than twenty years of experience researching the European Union to the Advisory Board. She has a great passion for Europe and for the EU as a project of international peace and security. She will be a great asset to our Advisory Board and our BRAND EU Programme.”
– said Nicolas De Santis, Gold Mercury President.
“It is an honour to join such a prestigious and international Board and to support the work of Gold Mercury and the BRAND EU programme. The EU is a vital actor in international affairs, especially in the area of peace and security. BRAND EU can play an important role in communicating what the European Union does more clearly to its citizens and the world.”
– said Dr Stephanie Anderson.
