Alessio Sacchi

In 2009 I received my BA with hons in International Studies at the University of Bologna, and in 2012 my M.A.with hons in European Studies in the same University (Forlì campus). During my MA I spent a year (2009-2010) at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques in Paris (Sciences Po). In Paris I also attended a six-month intensive postgraduate program (2011) on European Economics and Law at the Collège des Hautes Etudes Européennes "Miguel Servet", a joint program of Université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne and Universidad Complutense of Madrid. After a collaboration with the research foundation Istituto Cattaneo in Bologna, I enrolled the Ph.D in Political History at IMT, Lucca.



Research Interest

My main interests concern political and economical aspects of European integration process, as well as the history of European integration. In particular I am interested in the evolution of integration process during some crucial periods such as the economic and financial crises in the 70s and today. Indeed, my research at IMT deals with institutional change in EU during deep economic crises, trying to understand which mechanisms of institutional change are triggered by major crises.

My other study fields are regionalism and federalism in EU and European politics and policies (environmental and social policies).
