Giovanni Antonelli received his Ph.D. in European administrative environmental law from Sapienza University of Rome. His research interests concern environmental law, climate change and energy regulation, European administrative law, European law and Institutions.

As a Max Weber Fellow, Giovanni intends to investigate the rise of global cities and the local regulation of climate change. His research will focus on the dysfunctions at the national level to show how cities are becoming a new and hopeful transnational governance level.
