On 1 August 2015, Tatevik Manucharyan started her PhD research at the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance. Her research will focus on the role and procedures of the European Commission in macroeconomic adjustment programs in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU).
Since the onset of the sovereign debt crisis in 2010, four EMU Member States have been subject to these programs: Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Cyprus.
Tatevik holds a Master’s degree in European Law from Utrecht University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from University of California, Berkeley. Her research will be conducted under the supervision of Prof. Deirdre Curtin and Dr Joana Mendes.
