I am Associate Professor of  International Relations and Global Civil Society at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Catania, where I serve as Erasmus coordinator and Deputy Dean for Internationalization and Research.

I currently serve as Secretary of the Italian Political Science Association (SISP).

I am Convenor of the ECPR Standing Group on International Relations, and I am honored to have been elected President of the European Peace Research Association (EuPRA), and member of the ISA Governing Council.

My research focuses on non-state actors’ influence on global politics, both positive (civil society movements and NGOs) and negative (organized crime groups and terrorists). On these topics, I have extensively published, monographs, edited volumes, book chapters and journal articles (among others, on Global Crime, The European Union Review, Perspectives in European Politics and Society).

I am Associate Editor of the Journal of Contemporary European Studies, where I co-edit book reviews.
