His research focuses on various issues related to human rights law, particularly on human rights’ implementation in national legal orders, comparative analysis of international human rights protection in different regional systems, and the intersection between human rights, general principles of international law and environmental law.

Marco is member of the International Society of Public Law (ICON), the European Society of International Law (ESIL) and the Italian Society of International Law (SIDI). Due to his incisive and prolific academic approach, he is often selected as a speaker in international doctoral workshops, gives lectures in undergraduate and postgraduate courses and takes part in several research programs financed by the European Union and the Italian government.

During his stay, Marco will be working on and presenting part of his Ph.D. dissertation entitled “A Theoretical and Legal Approach to the Pilot Judgment Procedure of the European Court of Human Rights and its Implementation in Municipal Legal Orders”. This looks at the ways in which the ECtHR applies the pilot-judgment procedure and to what extent the respondent States are willing to implement general measures required to abide the judgments, thus leading to a critical approach on the legal nature of this procedure.
