Matteo Monti received his PhD in Comparative Constitutional Law from the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies (Italy). His PhD project dealt with the relationship between asymmetric federalism and secession in multinational federalizing processes. Prior to joining the EUI, he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pisa and at Luiss Guido Carli. During these experiences, he worked on the regulation of digital platforms, digital populism, and free speech online.

His research interests cover both comparative and Italian constitutional law and EU law, especially multi-level protection of fundamental rights, new media and the Internet, and comparative federalism.

As a Max Weber Fellow, Matteo Monti will work on how the EU protects, and could protect, online public discourse from digital populism, looking especially at the issues of disinformation and electoral manipulation.

In his academic career, he has also been involved in many teaching activities both in English and Italian. He taught courses and lessons in Comparative Constitutional law and Law and Technologies at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Luiss Guido Carli, Bocconi University, and the University of Pisa.
