ACCESS EUROPE affiliates host two Marie Curie fellows

Marta Morvillo and Silvia Aru have received individual Marie Curie Fellowships. They will be working closely with ACCESS EUROPE affiliates at the University of Amsterdam. 

Marta Morvillo (University of Bologna) will be hosted by ELG Theme Leader Christina Eckes and ELG affiliate Maria Weimer. Marta received the fellowship for her project 'The Constitutional Place of Expertise'. She will explore how constitutional principles can improve the democratic legitimacy of expert-based decision-making in the EU by activating processes of mutual learning between European Courts and decision-makers. Her aim is to promote a deeper integration of expert knowledge within the EU constitutional discourse. Marta will conduct her research at the Amsterdam Centre for European Law and Governance (ACELG). 

Silvia Aru (University of Cagliari and University of Siena) will conduct her research under the supervision of Darshan Vigneswaran at the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR). Silvia will be working on her project 'A Place for the Asylum Seekers', which aims to assess the complicated field of discourses and practices of regulating migration flows into the EU. It focuses on its socio-spatial impact since 2013, when the last Dublin II Regulation was promulgated, and specifically examines the cases of Italy and of the Netherlands.
