Silvia D’Amato received her PhD in Political Science from the Institute of Humanities and Social Science of the Scuola Normale Superiore, Florence, Italy. Her research project examines dynamics of counterterrorism cooperation and competition in Europe. More specifically, the project investigates how and to what extent counterterrorism efforts of the Member States respond to a dynamic of cooperation or competition, through comparative research focusing on four domains of counterterrosim: political-strategic; intelligence-sharing, organisational and proceduraldomain.

Currently, she is working on her PhD-based book, ‘Cultures of Counterterrorism: The French and Italian response in the post-9/11’, for the Routledge series Contemporary Security Studies (forthcoming).

During her PhD programme, Silvia served as visiting researcher in the Department of Social and Behavioural Sciences at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and in the Fondation pour la Recherche Stratégique in Paris.

Silvia served as a teaching assistant for courses in International Relations at the University of Bologna (Forli Campus) and in European Political Systems at the University of Genoa. Since completing her doctoral studies, she has taught courses of Comparative European Politics and Transatlantic Relations at the James Madison University (MA EU Policy Studies Programme).
