Giacomo Tagiuri (B.A., M.A., University of Bologna; M.A., Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies – SAIS) received his Ph.D. in Legal Studies from Bocconi University (2018) with a dissertation exploring the link between market regulation and culture in the context of the EU internal market. Giacomo’s research interests include EU internal market law, competition law, regulation, comparative public law, as well as legal theory and socio-legal studies. His work is multidisciplinary drawing from sociology, political economy, and the history of ideas to investigate both theoretical and empirical questions about the role of markets in society.
Giacomo’s current work studies EU integration and technological change as the drivers of economic transformations that challenge rooted experiences and identities, as well as conventional understandings of market liberalism. At the EUI, Giacomo will work towards turning his dissertation into a book as well as on advancing a research project exploring the consequences of market transformation through ethnographic work with consumers.
Prior to joining the Max Weber Program at the EUI, Giacomo was a Markets, Ethics and the Law post-doctoral Fellow at the Safra Center for Ethics at Tel AvivUniversity (2018-2019), as well as a visiting doctoral researcher at New York University (2016-2017) and the University of Sydney (April-May 2018).
Giacomo has teaching experience in the areas of comparative public law and EU law at the bachelor level. His work has been presented at numerous international conferences and published in law journals in both Europe and the US.
