Craig is also responsible for much of the English language editing for ECMI publications, as well as their processing and dissemination.
Before joining the ECMI, Craig studied the MA / MSc European Studies at Europa Universität Flensburg and the University of Southern Denmark, including an award-winning thesis entitled Distributing Communal Wealth. This focused on the normative aspects of redistribution and the concept of fairness with universal payments.
