Anne-Laure Beaussier’s work examines risk regulation in Europe and healthcare policy in the United States and Europe from an international comparative perspective. She has recently participated in several research projects funded by the ESRC and the ANR on health protection in the United States, access to healthcare in Europe, healthcare quality regulation in Europe, and risk governance in Europe.

Drawing principally on qualitative methodological approaches, she has conducted over 150 interviews with political and economic decision-makers in France, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

In 2016, she published La Santé aux Etats-Unis. Une histoire politique [Health in the United States: A Political History (FR)] with Sciences Po University Press.
