Roberta Guerrina is an expert in EU gender politics and policies.
She is interested in understanding the impact of gender (hierarchies) on key policy areas traditionally seen as gender neutral, such as Brexit, Security and Defence.
Currently, she is working on the unintended gender consequences of the UK's withdrawal from the EU. She has published in the area of Brexit; Women, Peace & Security; work-life balance; Identity politics and the idea of Europe.
She held the Jean Monnet Chair in EU Gender Politics (2017-2019) and is co-founder of the UACES-funded collaborative research network 'Gendering EU Studies'.
She co-authored one of the leading articles on the gendered impact of the UK's withdrawal from the EU: Walking in the Shadow of EU Law (with Annick Masselot). This article is making a detailed contribution to literature on the representation of women's interests in current debates about the future of UK policy post-Brexit.
