Anna Malandrino holds a Ph.D. in law and institutions from the University of Torino, a master's degree in international relations and diplomatic affairs from the University of Bologna and is currently completing a further master's degree in modern European and American languages, literatures and cultures. The main scope of her research is the European Union under an interdisciplinary perspective.
At the Center for European Studies as a visiting scholar, Malandrino's research project will investigate how policy tools affect the governance of migration in the European Union, with particular regard to language policies. In her project, she will employ an interdisciplinary approach involving the collection and analysis of empirical data, as well as diachronic and synchronic comparisons, using her legal analysis tools within the field of political science. Her research objective is to build a narrative of language policies and measures aimed at migrants in the EU and Italy shaped as they are on the one hand by assimilation incentives and on the other hand by multiculturalism, with the ultimate goal of producing evaluations to support policy learning and revision, as well as to foster debates in the academic community.
Her publications and papers so far deal with human rights, transnational cooperation and migrations.
This year, Malandrino won the Franco Levi Prize awarded by the University of Torino for the best Ph.D. dissertation about public administration reform, with her work concerning transnational cooperation between public authorities in the European Union.
