PLANGGER, MelanieMelanie Plangger studied Political Science and continued with the Master program European Politics and Society at the University of Innsbruck. During her studies, she attended traineeships at the Austrian Embassy in Budapest, the country office of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Bratislava and the European Parliament in Brussels. In 2014, she graduated with a master’s thesis on the role of member state’s interests in the EU enlargement policy towards the Western Balkan countries. 

In 2018, she obtained her doctoral degree at the University of Innsbruck. Her doctoral thesis “Moving mountains to Brussels: How regions act within, shape and benefit from the EU macro-regional strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP)” traces the development of the macro-regional strategy, a cooperation framework for 48 regions and seven states, over a period of seven years. On the basis of interviews, a document analysis and observational participation in conferences and meetings, the dissertation explores how German and Austrian Bundesländer, Swiss cantons, French régions and Italian province and regioni use an instrument of EU regional policy to respond to felt pressures of centralization, to connect across boundaries and to strengthen their position. During her doctoral studies, Plangger was a visiting research fellow at the University of Grenoble, the University of Trento and the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik in Brussels.

Currently, Plangger is working on the practical implementation of the EUSALP in the External Relations Department of the Office of the Tyrolean Government.
