Lise Moawad finished her studies in Politics and Public Administration (M.A.) at the Université Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris I) and the Universität Konstanz as well as her M.A. in German Studies at the Université Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV). Her two master's theses focused on federalism - whether it has been understood as a principle of state organisation or as a historical fact - through the example of German cultural and educational policy. She then worked for two years for the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEAE) as Policy Officer for Language and Education Cooperation at the French Embassy in Berlin. Since November 2020, Lise Moawad has been working for the project "Diversity and Adaptability of Peer Review" at the Robert-K.-Merton Centre (HU Berlin).
