I hold a PhD degree in Political and Social Sciences (European University Institute, Florence, Italy). My thesis was entitled 'Citizens-minus and Citizens-Plus: A Normative Attempt to Defend Citizenship Acquisition as an Entitleent Based on Residence' (read the abstract here). I defended it on 10 December 2013. The Jury members were Rainer Bauböck (EUI, Supervisor), Anna Triandafyllidou (EUI), David Owen (University of Southampton), and Joseph Carens (University of Toronto). The whole thesis is available online on CADMUS - EUI Research Repository here.
I previously obtained an MRes degree in Political Sciences (European University Institute, Florence, Italy), an MPhil degree in Political Philosophy (Central European University, Budapest, Hungary), and an MA degree in Philosophy (“Al. I. Cuza” University, Iasi, Romania).
My main research interests include political theory and philosophy, immigration, citizenship, minority rights, liberalism, normative ethics and the connection between ethics and international relations theory.
In the spring semester (January-March) 2014 I am guest lecturer at the Department of Political Science (Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences) of Maastricht University (Maastricht, The Netherlands), teaching two courses: 'International Relations: Contemporary Issues and Actors' and 'Fault lines. Contemporary debates on identity, culture and citizenship in Europe'.
My current research project tries to devise a concept of ‘complex equality’ in order to support a fairer treatment of asylum seekers and refugees in Europe.
