Cathy Cullen,  MSc International Public Policy, 2010-11 .

I started working as a researcher at the Institute of International and European Affairs (IIEA) in Ireland, just after I submitted my dissertation in September 2011.

The IIEA is an independent policy think-tank in Ireland that aims to provide analysis of EU and international developments to its members in order to disseminate ideas and inspire new thinking. Members of the Institute include individuals across the full spectrum of Irish industry, politics and civil society, as well as government officials and members of the diplomatic corps.

As a place to work, the IIEA is a unique forum for networking and for engaging with key players across a wide range of policy sectors. My primary research areas are ‘China-EU relations’ and ‘digital policy’. Specifically, I design a speaker programme around key themes within each of these sectors, alongside my personal research, which includes writing reports, briefings and blogs for the IIEA.

There’s no doubt that my year at UCL has been a great asset to me in my current role, especially my grounding in research methods. My quantitative training, in particular, granted me the opportunity to work on the IIEA’s ‘infograph’ project that looked at projections for key economic indicators across Europe in order to assess the strength of the European economy up until 2013. So, I certainly would like to take this opportunity to thank all the SPP staff for their support. To this year’s SPP class, enjoy every minute of your year, it’ll be over before you know it!
