Sophie Meunier is Research Scholar in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University and Co-Director of the EU Program at Princeton. She is the author of Trading Voices: The European Union in International Commercial Negotiations (Princeton University Press, 2005) and The French Challenge: Adapting to Globalization (Brookings Institution Press, 2001), winner of the 2002 France-Ameriques book award. She is also the co-editor of several books on Europe and globalization, including Developments in French Politics 5 (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) and The Politics of Representation in the Global Age (Cambridge University Press, July 2014).

In 2015-2016, she is teaching a Junior Research Seminar on European Integration and a Junior Policy Task Force on Negotiating the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership at WWS. A French and American citizen born and raised in Paris, Meunier received her BA from Sciences Po and her Ph.D. in Political Science from MIT. In 2012 she was made Chevalier des Palmes Académiques by the French government. But her proudest honor is to have baked the “best pie in Princeton”, a decadent chestnut and chocolate tart for which she received an official town honor at Pi Day. Indeed, her hobby (sometimes it feels like a second job...) is food and she enjoys cooking daily for her family and friends.
