Antonio Aloisi is a Max Weber Postdoctoral Fellow in the Law Department at the EUI and Teaching Fellow in European Social Law at Bocconi University.
His research focuses on non-standard employment and platform-mediated work both at the individual and the collective level. His interests span employment law and industrial relations.
He received his PhD in Business and Social Law (summa cum laude) from Bocconi University in 2018. His doctoral research examines the trend towards personal outsourcing and the prototypical business model of platform companies and then moves to discussing the notion of ‘employee’ and its key legal determinants. His dissertation, ‘Facing the challenges of platform-mediated labour: the employment relationship in times of non-standard work and digital transformation’, also seeks to square this fast-evolving phenomenon with the existing legal framework.
As a Max Weber Fellow, he will put particular emphasis on advancing his studies by revising his dissertation into a book.
Antonio has been involved in several research projects in the same field, some of which were developed in consortium with or commissioned by international institutions or research centres (JRC, Eurofound, OECD). He has authored and co-authored a number of articles and op-eds in his field of study in international peer-reviewed journals, books and blogs.
In 2016 he was a visiting researcher at the Center for International and Comparative at the Saint Louis University School of Law. Previously, he joined the Office of the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research, where he worked on a long-term policy framework for school reform in Italy.
