Marta Morvillo works at the interface of EU law, constitutional law, and risk regulation. She holds a Ph.D. in Constitutional law from the University of Bologna, an LL.M. in Public law and global governance from King’s College London and a Law degree from the University of Bologna. Since defending her Ph.D., Marta has been post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bologna, Max Weber fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, and Marie Skłodowska Curie fellow the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG), University of Amsterdam.
In her doctoral thesis, titled ‘Who decides on technical legislation? Analyzing the dialogue between politics and expertise in drafting and applying technical rules’, Marta focused how technically complex contents shape legislative processes at domestic level. Her current research focusses on the interaction between technical and democratic legitimacy and in particular on the development of a constitutional framework for experts’ involvement in EU decision-making. Marta’s broader research interests include comparative and EU constitutional law.
