Marta Morvillo is post-doctoral researcher at the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG), University of Amsterdam. Before joining ACELG in 2018 as Marie Skłodowska Curie fellow, she was Max Weber fellow at the European University Institute in Florence (2017-2018) and post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bologna (2015-2017). Marta holds a Ph.D. in Constitutional law from the University of Bologna (2012-2015), an LL.M. in Public law and global governance from King’s College London (2012), and a law degree from the University of Bologna (2011).
Marta’s expertise lies at the interface of EU law, constitutional law, and risk regulation. Her current research focus is 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. In her doctoral thesis, titled ‘Who decides on technical legislation? Analyzing the dialogue between politics and expertise in drafting and applying technical legislation’, she focused on the genetic aspects of such rules and outlined the paradigms according to which technical contents influence legislative processes at domestic level. Her broader research interests include comparative and EU constitutional law.
