Before coming to the Institute, I obtained a PhD in political theory from University College London School of Public Policy (2019). Before that, I studied philosophy at the University of Pavia (Italy), around 60 km away from my hometown, Piacenza, in the Italian region of Emilia.
My postodoctoral project, on the borders between moral, political and legal philosophy, looks at the moral foundations of rights and human rights. The general question I try to answer is what kind of role rights and human rights play in our moral discourse and practice. What would be lost, in other words, in a world without rights?
My PhD research was also in political philosophy. I investigated the political liberal response to the question of pluralism, and considered how value-disagreement might affect the legitimacy of the state.
