Dr Charlotte Godziewski is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in International Politics at City, University of London. She earned her PhD in 2020 from the University of Sheffield, and her thesis on 'Health in All Policies' in the EU was awarded the UACES 2021 Best PhD Thesis Prize. Charlotte is one of the coordinators of the UACES-funded research network on EU Health Governance.
Charlotte’s research looks at the politics of health, specifically the politics of framing health issues and defining what constitutes health promotion. She has explored these issues with an empirical focus on EU institutions, analysing ‘health promotion’ as a site of tension between the social and economic logics of EU integration. She is particularly interested in how knowledge production, the politics of evidence, and the research/policy relationship shape the governance of health.
Her interest in the politics of health developed while working as a dietitian in Nepal between 2012 and 2014, where she established and led a nutrition department in Dhulikhel at the Kathmandu University Teaching Hospital. After coming back to Europe, she worked as a policy intern for Food and Agriculture at the European Public Health Alliance while completing her MSc Global Health degree at Maastricht University.
