Salvatore Caserta employed as postdoc at iCourts

Salvatore holds a doctoral degree from the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen. During his PhD, he was associated with the institutionalization group of iCourts – the Centre of Excellence for International Courts. 

In his doctoral dissertation entitled “Institutionalizing Regional International Courts – Creation, Authority, and Power of the Central American and Caribbean Courts of Justice”, Salvatore examined the socio-political dynamics accounting for the establishment and the gaining of political significance of two recently established regional international courts: the Central American and the Caribbean Courts of Justice. His particular interest lies in researching and understanding the reasons why several regions of the world equipped their systems of regional integration with international judicial bodies, and in how these institutions develop and function over time.

Salvatore pursued an LL.M. at Berkeley Law School. During this program, he explored legal and sociological theories on the role of courts in the political process both at a national and transnational level. He was Visiting Scholar at the Yale Law School, New Haven, United States (2010-2011); at the International Institute for the Sociology of Law in Oñati, Spain; and at the Buffet Centre of the Faculty of Political Sciences of the Northwestern University, Evanston (Chicago), United States.

Salvatore graduated from the Faculty of Law of the University of Roma Tre with a final dissertation in Philosophy of Law, in which he analysed the role of the Constitutional Court as guardian of the constitution and, thus, as crucial assets of contemporary democracy.

Salvatore specialises in International Courts and International Dispute Resolution, Comparative Regional Integration, Public International Law, and Sociology of Law.

Salvatore is a member of the Centre of Excellence for International Courts (iCourts), and his office is located on the first floor in Studiegaarden, office 02-1-16.
