Eva Romée van der Marel obtained her PhD in international law from UiT The Arctic University of Norway, where she worked at the former K. G. Jebsen Centre (now, Norwegian Centre) for the Law of the Sea. Following this, she joined the European Commission (DG MARE) in Brussels, working on various law of the sea and fisheries related matters, and in particular, the fisheries subsidies negotiations at the WTO in Geneva, and the EU Arctic policy.
