Welcome to my page!

My name is Melanie Nolleau, a young professional specializing in European policies and international relations. Currently working for the French Ministry of Agriculture, I administer the Common Agriculture Policy (CAP 2023-2027) environmental policies components and their application within the French regulations and national programs.  

I graduated with a Master's in European Affairs from Sciences Po Paris. My area of interest ranges from EU external action, global trade to agriculture and environmental policies. With a strong background in political science, my holistic understanding of contemporary issues enabled me to work on topics such as gender equality, food security, trade policies and digital inclusion. I wish to dedicate my professional journey to working on providing innovative responses to current global challenges faced by the European Union and its Member States.
