Glaucia is a PhD candidate in Public Policy at the Federal University of Parana (Brazil). She developed research on public policy transfer among international organisations; specifically, her thesis topic is about higher education public policy transfer from the European Union to Mercosur.
She also holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy at the Federal University of Parana and a Bachelor’s in International Relations at Unicuritiba (Brazil). In her dissertation, she observed how Educational Mercosur is a space for synthesis and dissemination of public policies. Glaucia has also participated at some courses at the Hague Academy of International Law and at École Nationale d'Administration (France), which helped her in understanding how these interactions among different actors at the international level lead to public policy transfer.
