Marta Morvillo –

I am a constitutional lawyer interested in the interaction between technical and democratic legitimacy, with a focus on EU constitutional law and expert governance. I am currently postdoctoral researcher and Marie Curie fellow at the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG), University of Amsterdam.

I hold 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 cum laude from the University of Bologna. My doctoral thesis, titled ‘Who decides on technical legislation? Analysing the dialogue between politics and expertise in drafting and applying technical legislation’, focused on the genetic aspects of technical rules and standards, trying to outline the paradigms according to which technical contents influence legislative processes. Since 2015, I have held post-doctoral positions at the University of Bologna (2015-2017) and at the European University Institute (Max Weber Fellowship 2017-2018) and have been visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg (2015 and 2017).
