New visitor at iCourts - Tommaso Pavone

6 December 2017.

Tommaso Pavone is Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University, where he is a Graduate Associate in the Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) and the European Union (EU) Program. His research probes the ways that lawyers and judges reconfigure social and political relations – by constructing transnational polities, transforming local practices, and brokering fields of knowledge – across time and space, particularly in the European Union.

At iCourts, he will share some of his doctoral dissertation work on how the historical institutionalist process of European legal integration is negotiated and constructed in practice by lawyers and judges on the ground. This project, which is based on over a year and a half of field research in Italy, France, and Germany, is funded by the National Science Foundation's Law and Social Sciences Program, the Bobst Center for Peace and Justice, and the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS). Mr. Pavone holds an M.A. degree in Politics from Princeton University (2015), an M.A. degree in social sciences from the University of Chicago (2012), and a B.A. degree in public policy from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor (2010).
